Before a service is activated and available on the market, a number of steps have to be taken, ensuring that everything meets the relevant laws and regulations.
As the telecommunication Providers collect the money from you, their customer, they put a great deal of effort in vetting these Premium Services before they will get the “OK” status and are allowed to go ‘live’.
All telecommunications providers have ‘compliance’ departments, which only task is to verify that all business processes are complying with relevant laws, code of practices and so on. These departments check and monitor actively whether services services, products and systems adhere to the relevant regulations and state or federal laws.
In case of Premium Services, independent compliance monitoring agencies such as WMC Global specifically monitor the Premium Services markets, and have an important say in suspension of cancellation of services in case of non-compliance.
