formally recognise 0871 numbers

From August 2009 Ofcom made the decision to formally recognise 0871 numbers as premium rate services (PRS), putting them under the remit of Phone-Paid Services Authority' Code of Practice.

Now these have been classified as premium rate, there are PSA guidelines that need to be followed by any company who wants to run 0871 number services.

These regulations state that the cost of the call must be declared to the caller for transparency.

This can be done by having a notice next to the number wherever it is advertised. Where it is not practical to display call costs, and/or to cover literature that may already be in circulation it is acceptable to provide pricing information on connection of the service which can be done as a recorded intro message uploaded onto the number. We can in some circumstances assist with this free of charge.
