Donor: A party who, as holder of a number, at the request of a porter, portes this number to another party, the recipient, and/or has an agreement with a porter for the provision of a public telecommunications service that is terminated upon porting of the number used by the porter for that service.

Number porting/Number portability: the option for the person who purchases a public telecommunications service to continue to use the number in use by him in the context of the purchased telecommunications service if he (at the termination of the agreement with regard to the provision of that service) chooses to purchase the relevant telecommunications service from another provider in future.
Expression of will/Authorisation: proof of expression of will showing that the recipient is authorized by the porter and which proof must meet the applicable criteria as established in the methods and procedure of authorization as defined in the documents.
“Partners” of RoutIT / Motto / Pocos / Dean / Qupra: Partners of these parties are ICT and telecom parties such as you who conclude contracts in their own name with end users. These are therefore not resellers as if they were selling the product of, for example, KPN. This misunderstanding arises by using the term “reseller” (reseller), but they invoice the final relationship themselves. Partners must be ACM (Article 2.1 of the Telecommunications Act) and COIN registered.
Only the service provider (with whom the subscriber has a contract) can request porting of a telephone number.
A service provider is the COIN name for the legal term for a “public electronic communications service provider”. A service provider must be Coin and ACM registered.
Porting agreement: as a result of the master agreement between telecom parties and COIN, a porting agreement is created with the request for number porting. This porting agreement sets out the conditions for porting that specific number. The agreement is bilateral between the donor and recipient.
