About the Consortium
The RAG Wangiri Blockchain Consortium is an industry collaboration project that involves the coming together of telcos and vendors with a common interest in reducing the number of wangiri fraud calls received by phone users.

RAG Wangiri Consortium Duration
After a successful pilot project, the RAG Wangiri Blockchain Consortium will enter a continuous service phase on the 10th February 2020.
The RAG Wangiri Blockchain Consortium will continue to operate until formal notice of termination to approved consortium members by the Risk & Assurance Group.
Parties to the RAG Wangiri Blockchain Consortium
The RAG Wangiri Blockchain Consortium is a collaboration project between the Risk & Assurance Group and Orillion Solutions Limited.
The Risk & Assurance Group is the project owner and are responsible for reviewing and approving applications to join the consortium, as well as being responsible for the ongoing promotion of the project within the industry.
Orillion Solutions Limited are the RAG Wangiri Blockchain technology owners and are responsible for development and support of the technology for consortium users, as well as being active promotors of the project within the industry.
Consortium membership will include approved communications service providers and industry vendors who will participate in the project by sharing wangiri fraud intelligence with other approved consortium members using the blockchain technology solution.
Organizations requesting to join the RAG Wangiri Blockchain Consortium must do so through an authorized representative.
Requests to join the RAG Wangiri Blockchain consortium must clearly state which legal entity is seeking to become a member. This will help to avoid confusion in situations where several businesses use the same brand name (as occurs when several national communications service providers belong to the same international group) or where the public brand of a service provider is different to the legal name or names of the company or companies that operate that business.
Consortium members requesting access to and connecting to the blockchain are doing so for the sole purpose of managing fraud within their organizations and/or their operating entities and customers they are representing and/or supporting.
