Pretoria - The Independent Communications Authority (Icasa) on Friday extended the time for written submissions on the draft numbering plan regulations to July 26.

The communications sector regulator said it had reviewed requests for an extension and decided to change the initial July 19 deadline.

"In the interests of ensuring a fair and transparent public consultation process, the deadline for written submissions has been extended," it said in a statement.

The Draft Numbering Plan Regulations - a type of numbering scheme used in telecommunications to allocate and route telephone numbers in a telephone network - was published in Government Gazette on June 4.

Public hearings would be held from August 17 to 18 and there would be no further extensions.
