ComReg, the Irish communications regulator, is teaming up with other telecom regulators worldwide to stop annoying phone calls, texts, and emails. You know the ones – they’re a total nuisance and can even be used to scam people.
What is the DNO List?
The DNO List lists inbound-only phone numbers companies should not use to make outbound calls. This is because scammers and fraudsters often use fake caller ID numbers to trick people into answering their calls. Companies can help prevent these scams and protect their customers using the DNO List.

- Phone numbers that have a high likelihood of being scammed, including geographic numbers e.g. 01, 021 numbers, and Non-Geographic Numbers, e.g. 1800 and 0818 numbers
- Phone numbers that have been scammed in the past
- High-profile or widely advertised phone numbers e.g. numbers on bank cards, public service numbers
- Phone numbers with high volumes of consumer traffic
