Azerbaijani gov't devising legal base to register IMEI-codes of cell phones
Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 17 / Trend , H.Valiyev/
The Azerbaijani government is devising a legal framework and registration process of the IMEI-code of mobile phones, CEO Simbrella Seymour Mammadov told Trend .
Mammadov said the system will be launched upon coordinating all aspects between participants in the project.
The project will include cellular communication operators and governmental agencies. Thus, the State Customs Committee will carry out control and registration of imported hand sets. The Ministry of Information Technologies and Communication will regulate the project.
The database will be fulfilled intensively through IMEI codes of mobile hand-sets, which will be imported through Azerbaijan.
At present at the Heydar Aliyev International Airport, one can voluntary register IMEI-code of the phone when importing mobile phones into the country.
The new system will more effectively combat both the theft and illegal import of handsets into the country.
