The GSMA is in the process of updating all terminology relating to device blacklisting and whitelisting. We believe the use of language is an important reflection of our values and realise that these terms, whilst historic, are not consistent with our commitment to eradicate racial stereotyping and stigma. Our language will no longer include references to coloured lists. These changes will be made across all GSMA departments, including repositioning our “blacklisting service” to GSMA Device Registry. Going forward, this registry will hold an inventory of flagged mobile devices. We have begun this task by editing online content and policy documentation will follow. If you see references requiring change, please be kind enough to let us know by emailing us at imeiservices@gsma.com.
