Customer Change Team Leader


This Change Proposal has been raised to identify any references to ‘facsimile’ within CDSP systems, processes and documentation. 

Currently there are processes which request fax numbers from customers and therefore there are fields within certain files and documentation that will be inapplicable following the Modification and ultimately, decommissioning of PSTN.

Fax is included as an allowable value in certain UK Link files and where there are instances of it being received into the UK Link database, an assessment is needed to consider how this should be managed in terms of fax being updated in UNC and being decommissioned.

In instances where fax is listed as the only form of communication, this must be identified, and a suitable alternative introduced to ensure no interruption to any ongoing services.
