  • Stronger industry practices to support IPND Data Providers use of validation practices to improve data quality;
  • Development of guidance for Data Providers to implement processes that allow subscribers to easily view and correct their IPND records;
  • Establishment of awareness raising measures to highlight to subscribers the importance and need for providing correct information to their Carriage Service Provider, in order to ensure the IPND record is accurate.
The Code reflects practices that are the only achievable and practical approach to dealing with these matters.
