New telephone numbers in the administrative sector of the Ministry of Justice as of 15 November 2011
New telephone and fax numbers were taken into use in the administrative sector of the Ministry of Justice on 15 November 2011.
This means that numbers that previously started with 010 36 will now start with 029 56. The end part of the numbers stays the same. In connection with this reform, the numbers starting with 0100 were taken out of use. The new numbers are displayed on the websites of the agencies as of 15 November 2011.
The old numbers will work alongside the new ones until 1 March 2012. After that, calls to the old numbers starting with 010 and 0100 will be transferred to a voice message about the new numbers. The old numbers will be disconnected in the summer of 2012.
Phone calls become surcharge-free
Only a local network fee or a mobile call fee determined by the caller's operator will be charged for a (029 56) phone call to any of the units within the administrative sector. The telephone number system of the state administration, which is now taken into use in the administrative sector of the Ministry of Justice, fulfils the requirement of surcharge-free phone calls set by the Parliamentary Ombudsman.
The telephone numbers starting with 010 36 (subject to a surcharge) will be in use alongside the new ones until the beginning of March 2012. During this transitional period, calls made to the old numbers are automatically transferred to the new numbers. When calling to an old (010 36) number, the call is still subject to a surcharge. After the beginning of March, the old numbers are transferred to a voice message. The old numbers will be disconnected in the summer of 2012 at the latest.
