Who is the Dutch telecommunications authority?

The Netherlands Authority for the Consumer and Market (ACM) implements number policy. The ACM assigns and withdraws numbers and monitors their use.

Can I, as party outside The Netherlands or as an expat, also obtain a Dutch number?

Yes, you can. At Belfabriek you can roughly register 4 different types of Dutch phone numbers, which we will explain briefly below.

Local numbers

Just like many European countries. In the Netherlands we also utilize area codes for phone numbers. For example, Amsterdam telephone numbers always start with 020.

Does your company have a strong connection with the Amsterdam region? Then you can easily apply for a 020 number via Belfabriek. In principle Belfabriek can register all possible local numbers. So also for example a Rotterdam 010 number or a 070 area code in The Hague.

National numbers

Do you want to offer your products and/or services all over the Netherlands? Then a national 085 number is suitable for that purpose. These numbers are not bound to a particular city or region and therefore enjoy a national image. Callers can call these numbers at local rates. So there are no additional costs compared to local landline numbers.

0800 numbers

Also in the Netherlands they have toll-free 0800 numbers, which are free to call for callers. The operator pays for all call charges. These numbers are ideal for e.g. charities, but also for industries that are particularly competitive. Important to consider is that Dutch 0800 numbers cannot be called from outside the Netherlands.

0900 numbers

Dutch 0900 numbers are premium rate numbers. The rate paid by the caller is variable. The 0900 number holder determines what it costs to call an 0900 number. You can choose between a rate per minute or a rate per call. The ACM (Dutch telecommunications authority) has set maximum rates. Per minute the caller may be charged a maximum of €1.10. The upper limit for a rate per call is €1.60. The rate must always be made known to the caller. These numbers are ideal if you want to break even on your Dutch telephone number, or even if you want to earn money from running it. Please note that 0900 numbers can be a barrier to potential Dutch customers due to their higher costs.
