Ofcom amended General Condition 4 on 8 September 2008. From this date, all VoIP services that allow users to make calls to traditional fixed or mobile phones (type 2 VoIP services), or to make calls to and receive calls from traditional fixed or mobile phones (type 4 services) must provide 999 / 112 access at no charge. "Click to call" services are excluded from this obligation.

Furthermore, the Network Operator must also provide Caller Location Information for calls to the emergency call numbers, to the extent that is technically feasible. These requirements already apply to fixed line and mobile communications providers. In its policy statement of 5 December 2007 (http://www.ofcom.org.uk/consult/condocs/voip/voipstatement/voipstatement.pdf) Ofcom stated that, in relation to VoIP calls, ‘technically feasible’ should be taken to mean that location information need only be provided where the VoIP service is being used at a predominantly fixed location.
