    Phone Number Compliance is Simpler with our V2 Regulatory Compliance APIs Phone Number Compliance API v2

    Today we are excited to announce the new version of the Phone Number Compliance APIs (v2), now in Beta. With the migration to the RC APIs, Twilio is making phone number provisioning a lot easier in regulated countries.

    As you may know, to provision regulated phone numbers, you must follow local requirements of a country or territory, providing End-User information and Supporting Documents. Using the Regulatory Compliance APIs, you can view each country’s telecom requirements using Twilio’s Regulations API. End-Users, Supporting Documents, and Addresses are all accessible via our Public REST API or in the Console; numbers are assigned to follow a country or territory’s telecom Regulations.

    Here’s a summary of why we’re introducing these changes, what is changing, and how this can benefit you.

    Why does this matter?

    Regulatory compliance is all about Knowing Your Customer (KYC) – many countries' and territories’ telecom regulators want to know the …

    Important Change to the Philippines Local Numbering Plan Local Number Philippines Change

    At Twilio, it’s important for us to share when there are changes to phone numbers that may affect you. There is an upcoming change for all Philippines local numbers in Metro Manila and neighboring areas bearing the 02 area code. If you have provisioned phone numbers in the 02 area code, you will receive email communications about this change.

    Starting October 6, 2019, between 12:01 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. Philippine Standard Time (PST) / October 5, 4:01 to 9:00 p.m. Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), all Philippines local numbers in the Metro Manila neighboring areas bearing the 02 area code will change from 7 to 8 digits in length (or from 10 to 11 digits if you count the country code of +63).

    The new 8-digit local numbering plan is the result of new regulations implemented by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) in the Philippines.

    Every Twilio +632 phone number will …

    Important Change to the Twilio Phone Number Provisioning API Important Changes to the Twilio Phone Number Provisioning API

    Regulatory Compliance (RC) requirements for phone numbers have increased worldwide. We have been working with regulators to ensure that phone numbers you provision are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. As part of this engagement, we made an important change to the Twilio Phone Number Provisioning API.

    You should have received email communications about this change if you use this API for phone numbers outside the US and Canada. To reiterate:

    Starting September 10, 2019, the Phone Number Provisioning API will require you to provide an address for any new regulated number you provision. If you don’t include a valid address, you will receive error code 21631.

    You can find address requirements for the country where you are provisioning numbers on our Phone Number Regulations page.

    What’s Changing with the Twilio Phone Number Provisioning API?

    Previously, address requirements were not enforced through the API. You …
