It promotes new use cases for enterprise messaging and supports the development of new business models, products and services with the shared goal to build a premium and trusted channel with sustained growth.

A series of working groups are dedicated to promoting, sharing and developing mechanisms to limit fraudulent practices across the messaging ecosystem tackling the different fraud types affecting enterprise messaging value chain including Consumer and Network fraud. The Working Group has collaborated to agree best practices to limit fraud and in 2018 launched the A2P SMS Code of Conduct which aims to protect consumers and demonstrate ethical responsibility while maximising value to all companies in the messaging ecosystem.
