IMEI Services

As the global source of IMEI data, GSMA IMEI Services provide unrivalled device intelligence. We manage the allocation of all equipment identifiers on behalf of the industry; this means the GSMA is the originating source of all TAC (Type Allocation Code) which form the first 8 digits of the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) which identifies each unique mobile device on all GSM networks. We also curate the GSMA IMEI Blacklist to provide a look up service, refreshed daily, of reported lost or stolen devices.
