'Art. L. 36-7. -The telecommunications regulatory authority "(...)" (7) establishes the national telephone numbering plan, attributed to operators in numbering resources for their activity under the conditions provided for in article L. 44 and ensures their proper use; (...) "'Art. 44. -The national telephone numbering plan is established by the telecommunications regulatory authority and managed under its control. It ensures equal and simple users access to different networks and electronic communications services and the equivalence of the numbering formats. Subject to technical and economic feasibility, it allows users located in other States members of the European Community to access the accessible non-geographical numbers throughout the national territory.
"The authority prescribes in conditions objective, transparent and non-discriminatory, to operators who so request, prefixes and numbers or blocks of numbers, a fee fixed by Decree in Council of State, to cover the costs of the telephone numbering plan management and control of its use.
"The award decision States the terms of use of these prefixes, numbers or blocks of numbers dealing with:" (a) the type of service to which the use of the resources allocated is reserved;
"(b) the requirements needed to ensure an effective use of the resources allocated;
'(c) where appropriate, the requirements for number portability;
"(d) the duration of the assignment, which cannot be longer than 20 years.
"The authority attributed to the operators, under the same conditions, codes used for the delivery of electronic communications which are not the Internet addressing system.
"The authority ensures the proper use of the prefixes, numbers, number blocks and codes assigned. These cannot be protected by an industrial or intellectual property right and can be transferred only after agreement of telecommunications regulatory authority.
"Operators are required to offer a good price to subscribers offers allowing them to retain their geographic number when they change operator without changing location and keep their non-geographic, fixed or mobile number, when they change operator while staying in metropolis, in the same Department overseas, Mayotte and St. Pierre and Miquelon." Operators the necessary provisions in the conventions of access and interconnection at rates reflecting the related costs.
"The offers referred to in the preceding paragraph must allow the subscriber requesting to change operator while keeping its number within a maximum period of ten days, unless specific request of the Subscriber. Conservation of number, request by the Subscriber to the operator with which it signed a new contract, is transmitted by the operator to the Subscriber. Without prejudice to the contractual provisions relating to the minimum terms of engagement, the effective porting of the number causes the termination of the contract between this operator to the Subscriber at the latest within the aforementioned period of ten days.
"A decree, taken after advice of the authority of regulation of electronic communications and positions, the higher Commission of public service positions and electronic communications and the national Consumer Council, specifies the modalities of application of the preceding two paragraphs."
The guidelines 'framework' and 'permission' referred to above have also: Directive No. 2002/20/EC of 7 March 2002 'permission': 'art. 5. - rights of use of radio frequencies and numbers "(...)" 2. when it is necessary to grant rights of use of radio frequencies and numbers, Member States grant them, on request, to, any company providing or using networks or services under the general authorisation, subject to the provisions of articles 6 and 7 and article 11, paragraph 1, point c) of this directive and any other rules ensuring the efficient resources use , in accordance with directive 2002/21/EC (directive "setting).

Directive No. 2002/21 on 7 March 2002 /CE 'framework': 'art. 10 - numbering, naming and addressing "1. The Member States shall ensure that national regulatory authorities control the assignment of all national numbering as well as the management of the national numbering plans resources. Member States shall ensure that numbers and series of adequate numbers are provided for all publicly available electronic communications services. National regulatory authorities to establish procedures for assignment of objective, transparent and non-discriminatory national numbering resources.

'2. national regulatory authorities shall ensure that numbering plans and associated procedures to be implemented in a way that ensures equal treatment to all providers of publicly available electronic communications services. In particular, Member States ensure that a company to which is assigned a range of numbers does not discriminate against other providers of electronic communications services regarding the number sequences used to give access to their services.

"5. when appropriate to ensure interoperability of services, Member States coordinate their positions within the organizations and international forums where decisions concerning problems in numbering, naming and addressing of electronic communications services and networks are made."
The development of the rules adopted in 1998 is the subject of consultations carried out initially by the Directorate General of post and telecommunications and, since January 1, 1997, by the telecommunications regulatory authority, with all the parties concerned: operators, industrialists, users.
Similarly, the update of the management rules in 2005 underwent consultations carried out by the electronic communications regulatory authority and positions. A call for comments relating to the numbering plan was launched in October 2004 and contributions to this call for comments was published in March 2005. Summaries by theme have also been published by the authority. Finally, the projects of the authority on the subject have been discussed in several speakers in consultation and in particular the Advisory Committee of the numbering.
These rules of management are not for the amounts of the charges for numbering resources.
Portability section L. 44 of the post and electronic communications code cited above stipulates the conditions according to which numbers can be carried from one operator to another.
All numbers from the national numbering plan that can be assigned to end-users are portable. This provision includes the numbers used for interpersonal communications but also all the numbers used for the access to services and affected, for example, to a Publisher.
The Advisory Commission of the networks and services of electronic communications and the radio Advisory Board have been consulted respectively on 30 November 2005 and 2 December 2005.
Definitions the key concepts used by the present management rules are defined by the post and electronic communications code. However, other words, which take on a special significance in this context must be specified.

"Non geographic number means any number from the national telephone numbering plan that is not a geographic number.
"15 ° operator.
"Operator means any natural or legal person operating an electronic communications network that is open to the public or providing public electronic communications service."
(...) ' Article 2 of directive no. 2002/21/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 7 March 2002 introduced in addition the following definitions: "(h) 'user': a natural or legal person using or requesting a publicly available electronic communications service;

"The terms used in the rules based on the definitions provided by the laws and regulations, the following terms are used in these rules of management.
Nomenclature the french numbering plan ten-digit numbers are represented in the following way: E Z A B P Q M C D U, where each letter represents a digit between 0 and 9. From the point of view of the international plan E.164, only ZABPQMCDU letters characterise the french numbering plan.
National numbering plan national numbering Plan is the resource formed by the structured whole numbers to identify endpoints fixed or mobile networks and telephone services, direct calls and access internal network resources including.
This plan corresponds to seven segments of the global numbering defined by the E.164 standard plan:-the metropolitan France (ITU country code: + 33);
-Guadeloupe (ITU country code: + 590);
-French Guiana (ITU country code: + 594);
-Martinique (ITU country code: + 592);
-the meeting (ITU country code: + 262);
-Mayotte and Austral land and French Antarctic (ITU country code: + 269, shared with the Comoros);
-St Pierre and Miquelon (ITU country code: + 508).
These plans in addition to short and special numbers are not part of the plan E.164 (3 EDLP, 118 XYZ, 1 XY, l OYT) and the prefixes (16 XY and 'E') carrier selection.
There are also other plans to address, such as: dial semaphore, ADMD, DNIC (X.121), NSAP plan, Internet (IPv4 and IPv6), the plan of the codes IMSI (E.212), the plan of the codes ITSI (E.218), the plan of the codes the CCITT No.7 (R1R2) signalling system networks, etc. Are not these rules of management. Some of these resources are administered by decisions of the authority.

Internal numbers used by some networks are not part of the national Plan. If a number assigned by the authority is, in fact, already used, such use will be abandoned in favor of intended use at the national level, within a reasonable period specified by the authority.
Award the award is the authorisation given by the authority to an operator of electronic communications, after review of the application, to use the resource designated for his own account or that of its customers in the terms of use defined in decision No. 2005-1085 of the regulatory authority for electronic communications and positions, as of December 15, 2005, clarified or recalled by the award decision and If any, by the specifications associated with the authorization it has.
Assignment the assignment means provision by the attribute of a resource, a number, or a series of numbers, to end-users resident in one of the territories associated with the seven country codes under the responsibility of the authority in respect of the national Plan numbering, and according to contract terms. After informing the authority, some numbers can be used by the owner for its own account to meet the needs related to the operation (tests, routing, after-sales services, etc.).
Provision to a third party operator provision to a third party operator means provision by the attribute of a resource, a number or a series of numbers to another electronic communications operator, called 'custodian operator', in compliance with the national Plan numbering and according to contract terms. The custodian operator then affects resource numbering of the holder to the end user.
Publication the publication consists in making available to the public by the authority of the information relating to the structure and evolution of the plan on the one hand and the situation and the use of the resources allocated, on the other hand.
For the good update of information, each operator must inform other operators, ARCEP, and ITU - T operational opening of its numbering resources. An operator is not allowed to publish information (for example in a bulletin of ITU) about resources allocated to another operator.
Series of numbers: $ 1 million of consecutive numbers identified by their first three digits ("a ZAB').
Block of numbers: the smallest amount of consecutive numbers due outside the numbers assigned to the unit. It is usually 10,000 numbers (form "ZABPQ"), it will be 1,000 numbers (form 'ZABPQ M'), after consultation with the operators concerned, decides: Article 1 the rules of management of the national numbering in the annex are approved.


Article 2 Six months at the latest after the date of adoption of this decision, the incumbent operators of resources reserved under the terms of decision No. 98-75 of the telecommunications regulation authority, dated February 3, 1998, are required:-either to return the resources reserved for the authority according to the terms defined by the rules of management of the national numbering plan.
-or to ask the authority for the allocation of resources according to the terms defined by the rules of management of the national numbering plan.
At the end of that six month period, all remaining booking decisions will be repealed.


Article 3 the decision No. 98-75 of the telecommunications regulatory authority, dated February 3, 1998, is repealed. The resources allocated under this decision will refer to decisions No. 2005-1084 and 1085-2005 of the electronic communications regulatory authority and positions, as of December 15, 2005.


Article 4 no later than Six months after the adoption of this decision, operators having made available to a third-party operator of one or several numbering resources need to be made in accordance with the provisions of this decision relating to the provision to a third party operator.


Article 5 the Chief operators and regulation of the scarce resources of the electronic communications and posts regulatory authority is responsible for the execution of this decision, which will be published in the Official Journal of the French Republic.


Article Appendix A N N E X E RULES OF MANAGEMENT of THE PLAN NATIONAL DE NUMBERING object of the decision under the terms of article 10 of directive 2002/21/EC of 7 March 2002 referred to above, the Member States shall ensure that national regulatory authorities control the assignment of all national numbering resources. Member States shall ensure that numbers and series of adequate numbers are provided for all publicly available electronic communications services. National regulatory authorities to establish procedures for assignment of objective, transparent and non-discriminatory national numbering resources. In addition, article 6 of directive 2002/20/EC of 7 March 2002 referred to above specifies the conditions which may be attached to rights of use of numbers.
These provisions have been transposed by the articles L. 36 - 7 and L. 44 of the SCTE from the drafting of the law No. 2004-669 of 9 July 2004 on electronic communications and audiovisual communication services. Thus, the development and publication of these rules of management, established on the basis of the provisions of article L. 44 of the SCTE, are designed to specify the procedures for the management of numbering resources.

1 allocation procedures, repeal, withdrawal, provision and transfer of numbering resources the procedures described below are generic procedures. They apply to all categories of numbers, except special provision specified by the authority.
Applications award, return or information must be made in the French language only.
1.1 1.1.1 allocation. Admissibility of the conditions of admissibility of applications applications specify the criteria for the filing of an application for assignment of certain categories of resources in numbering by an operator of electronic communications. They are without prejudice to the decision taken by the authority after consideration of all of the record and the status of the plan.
The filing of an application results in acceptance by the applicant of all the management of the numbering rules contained in the present document.
In accordance with article L. 44 of the code of posts and communications (1), numbers from the national numbering plan are attributed only to operators reported to the authority under article L. 33 - 1 of the same code.
The conditions of admissibility of applications depend on the type of resource being requested, its availability and the type of activity declared by the operator.
Numbers that are not assigned two categories of numbers are not assigned directly to an operator:-access to emergency services numbers.
-numbers to unmarked features.
(1) « [...] The authority prescribes in objective, transparent and non-discriminatory conditions to operators who so request, prefixes and numbers or blocks of numbers [...].

-where applicable, the geographical criteria;
-equality of treatment and maintenance of conditions for fair competition;
-respect of agreements and community and international rules relevant.
-the payment of fees related to numbering resources assigned the years preceding the year of application.
1.1.3. application for allocation of resource demand is addressed to the authority by registered letter with advice of delivery. The date of this notice of receipt authoritative for any delay to run from this request.
Content of the application of attribution the application folder has the following information:

1.1.4. decision to award the Authority reviews the application of the resource allocation taking into account particularly the criteria mentioned in paragraph 1.1.2. Applications meeting the eligibility criteria defined in paragraph 1.1.1 are processed in the order of arrival of the complete files. In order to separate applications admissible, received the same day and wearing on identical resources, the authority is to a draw.
Certain categories of numbers may be of an exceptional allocation procedure to ensure access of operators to the numbering of a transparent, objective and non-discriminatory resources.
The authority may:-assign the resource;
-assign the resource for a limited duration;
attribute-only part of the resource being requested;
-refuse the allocation of the resource.
The award decision States the terms of the award in accordance with the provisions of article L. 44 of the post and electronic communications code. The award decision is the commitment by the successful tenderer to comply with all of the terms of use of the assigned resource.
After receipt of the complete file, the authority shall notify its decision to the applicant within a period of three weeks from the date of receipt, in accordance with the European directive 'Permission' no. 2002/20/EC of 7 March 2002. This period does not run if the file does not contain all of the elements mentioned in paragraph 1.1.3.

1.1.5. commissioning the assigned resource should be used within a period of one year after notification of the decision.
Within fifteen days of the actual use of the assigned resource, the operator attribute informs the authority by mail from the actual commissioning of the resource.
For individually assigned numbers, means actual use the commercial commissioning of the number. For numbers per block, it's the opening of the first Subscriber or the opening date in the network of the block.
1.2 abrogation and withdrawal of a decision to award the abrogation or withdrawal of a decision to award may intervene in the following cases: 1.2.1. Repeal at the request of the holder if necessary, the applicant notifies the authority that he ended the service by registered letter with notice of reception along with a copy of the request for cancellation of the resource in the networks of other operators, and want to return the corresponding numbering resource. The resource is no longer subject to royalties from the day of receipt of mail. The repeal of the decision to award the corresponding resource is then notified to the holder.
1.2.2 withdrawal for non-use or the conditions of allocation and use of resources when the resources are not used according to their conditions of allocation and use, or if a significant share of the resource remains unused, the authority may pronounce the withdrawal of numbers in accordance with the procedure referred to in article L. 36 - 11 of the SCTE.
1.2.3. reallocation of the corresponding resource a resource including the abrogation or withdrawal has been pronounced becomes free, but will not be subject to a new assignment before six months, unless the applicant is the former attribute. Where the resource has been removed for misuse (section 1.2.2), the resource will not be able to make subject to a new assignment before six months, regardless of the applicant.
1.3 provision to a third-party provider, where appropriate, the holder of a numbering resource can entrust this resource assignment to (x) client (s) final (s) to another operator. There are then the operator 'attribute' to which the resource is assigned, "custodian" operator which assigns the resource to end-customers.
Provision to a third operator is possible only under the following conditions:-the operator "custodian" said to the authority, on the basis of article L. 33 - 1 positions and code of electronic communications, the activity necessary for the exploitation of the affected resource;
-the "attribute" operator notifies to the authority by mail recommended with acknowledgement of receipt or resources that are "made available" the operator custodian and a description of the service that will be provided through this or these resources. This notification must take place before actual contracting of provision between the operator attribute and the repository operator.
In the case of a resource allocated by block, the provision can carry on all or any subset of the resource.
Respect of all obligations associated with the allocation of a resource remains the responsibility of the operator attribute, including the provision of the annual report for the use of the resources made available, described in 2.1. The operators concerned by the provision must to more to ensure the right to portability for end users, in accordance with article L. 44 of the post and electronic communications code.
1.4 transfer the application for authorization of transfer of an assigned resource is filed with the authority by the beneficiary final allocation, in the form and conditions laid down in paragraph 1.1, with an agreement signed by the original attribute.
The decision to award the resource to a new holder is heard and taken in accordance with paragraph 1.1.
The period provided for in paragraph 1.2.3 does not apply.
2. control the assigned numbers are managed by operators with the aim of a good national economy. In particular, operators strive to reduce the number of numbers without commercial use.
This good economy is appreciated by the Authority during annual usage and on the occasion of any request for additional resources for the same use.
2.1 annual report before 31 January of each year, the attribute of one or more numbering resources for the authority a report of all assigned resources using the previous years, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt. The report must also be provided in electronic format, for example in the form of a CD-Rom. If the report is not provided on the date noted above, any new resource request processing is suspended until the provision of this document.

This report must contain a minimum, and for each type of numbers, the following information: you can view table in the JO No. 19 of the 22/01/2006 text number 18 the attribute of a resource numbering must inform the authority, ITU - T and other operators in the commercial opening of a number or the opening of the first issue of a block of numbers.
The authority may, at any time, ask the owner to specify the conditions of use of an assigned resource and give it access to the file of its subscribers.
The Authority reserves the right to control the traffic data with the help of the network open to the public which are required to bring their contest.
2.2. compliance with the conditions of provision the authority controls the compliance with the conditions of availability of numbering resources allocated based on the criteria defined in 1.3.
2.3 control of the respect of the eligibility conditions and usage of A numbers anytime, the changes involved in the evidence provided in the application of attribution and, in particular, the change in quality or social reason, are carried by the holder to the knowledge of the authority.
The authority controls the compliance of the services offered through a resource numbering with the eligibility of such resource. Notably, a gap between the actual conditions of use and the elements reported to the authority at the decision-making process may warrant a review of the decision to award that could lead to a withdrawal, in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 1.2.2.
Similarly, the authority controls the proper use of the resources allocated based on the terms of use defined for each type of resource.
A breach in the terms of use may warrant a review of the award decision that could lead to a withdrawal, in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 1.2.2.
3 release the authority makes available to the public a file containing the information relating to the structure and evolution of the plan on the one hand, and the situation of the resources allocated, on the other hand.
The information supplied to the authority are confidential, except those whose publication is provided for the management rules. However, operators can specify a level of confidentiality for information that they consider particularly sensitive subject to the legislative and regulatory provisions enjoyed by the authority.
Assignments file is updated weekly.
3.1 structure and evolution of the plan file describes the structure of the plan, its use and, if necessary, the planned changes.
3.2 State of resources the file presents the situation of all numbering resources.
Assignments to end users via the attribute are not described in the file.
3.3 structure of the published State of the resource a resource numbering information can be in one of the following five States:-free: the resource may be the subject of an application;
-in the course of treatment: an allocation is currently under review;
-assigned: an award has been granted by the authority.
-blocked: the resource cannot, temporarily, be attributed;
-unusable: the resource cannot be attributed (1).
(1) example: due to the structure of the plan (Z = 0).
Available information 1. Numbers of the form AB PQ MC OZ OF the file allows access to non-confidential information relating to a particular resource that is specified by the user.
By ZAB, it allows to get the following information:-the State of the resource;
-identity of the holder (if the resource is assigned);
-the service designation (if the resource is assigned and the open service);
-mention of the existence or not of portability between operators;
-scheduled commercial service opening if it is an assigned resource.
The file contains also the following two lists sorted by value of Z:-list of blocked numbers blocks;
-list of blocks of numbers.
For each block are possibly indicated the name of the owner and the service concerned. These information are always indicated if service is available commercially.
The modularity of the geographic numbers in France management is typically the block of ten thousand numbers corresponding to a ZABPQ, except in special cases.
2. short numbers to access value-added this file, for each of these numbers, the following information:-the number State;
-identity of the holder;
-designation of the service;
-scheduled commercial service opening if it is a number assigned.
3 special numbers (1 X, 1XY, 1XYT) file contains the same information as in the case of short numbers for each of the numbers.
