Area Codes and the North American Numbering Plan (NANP)

Go to: Assigned Area Code List

Go to: Future Area Code List

The North American Numbering Plan (NANP) is an integrated telephone numbering plan serving nineteen north American countries that share its resources. These countries include the United States and its territories, Canada, Bermuda, Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, and Turks & Caicos.

Regulatory authorities in each participating country have plenary authority over numbering resources, but the participating countries share numbering resources cooperatively.

AT&T developed the North American Numbering Plan in 1947 to simplify and facilitate direct dialing of long distance calls. Implementation of the plan began in 1951.

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) assigned country code "1" to the NANP area. The NANP conforms with ITU Recommendation E.164, the international standard for telephone numbering plans.

NANP numbers are ten-digit numbers consisting of a three-digit Numbering Plan Area (NPA) code, commonly called an area code, followed by a seven-digit local number. The format is usually represented as

NXX-NXX-XXXX

where N is any digit from 2 through 9 and X is any digit from 0 through 9.

The North American Numbering Plan Administration (NANPA) holds overall responsibility for the neutral administration of NANP numbering resources, subject to directives from regulatory authorities in the countries that share the NANP.  NANPA's responsibilities include assignment of NANP resources, and, in the United States and its territories, coordination of area code relief planning and collection of utilization and forecast data.

NANPA is not a policy-making entity. In making assignment decisions, NANPA follows regulatory directives and industry-developed guidelines. NANPA's responsibilities are defined in Federal Communication Commission (FCC) rules and in comprehensive technical requirements drafted by the telecommunications industry and approved by the FCC.

Since 1997, the FCC has selected the company that serves as NANPA through a competitive bidding process. In 1997, NeuStar (then Lockheed Martin IMS) was selected to serve for a five-year term as NANPA. In 2003, NeuStar was again selected to serve an additional five year term beginning in July, 2003.
