The general public is hereby advised that it is now compulsory to register all active Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards.

 

This mandatory process is effective as of July 23, 2016 under the SIM Card Registration Regulation 2016 (Statutory Instrument No.7 of 2016) as published in National Gazette No. G228 dated April 22, 2016. NICTA has continuously advised the Mobile Operators on the implementation process of the regulation. All active SIM card subscribers and users are therefore urged to visit their nearest mobile sales outlet or contact your service provider to fully register your SIM. 

Failure to do so may result in the deactivation of your SIM without notice. 

The SIM Card Registration Regulation 2016 is available on the NICTA website at www.nicta.gov.pg
