The National Numbering Plan (NNP) includes the parts of the international numbering plan that have been assigned to Greece by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), as well as all number resources used by providers of electronic communications networks/services and generally, all numbers associated with these activities.
The granting of rights of use for numbering resources of the National Numbering Plan is strictly divided into the following categories:
Primary allocation: EETT allocates numbers from the National Numbering Plan to providers of electronic communications services and/or networks and state networks, as well as to charitable non-profit organizations. In addition, undertakings active in the sector of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) services may apply for allocation of numbers to provide such services.
Secondary allocation: A provider of an electronic communications network and/or services grants to users the rights of use for the numbering resources primarily allocated to it by EETT, under specific terms, conditions and restrictions which are defined in the relevant applicable legislation.
It is pointed out that the tertiary assignment of numbering resources is prohibited.
