The "Unique" numbers of format 101xxx became 81101xxx in a similar process, except that '81' was prepended to the existing 6-digit special number.
Short codes were standardised to a 4-digit format, with some existing 4-digit short codes renumbered.

For geographic/fixed numbers, the digit 7 was prepended to the existing area code and existing 6-digit subscriber number to form the new 8-digit national number. For example, within Tunisia, (01) 234567 became 71234567. From outside Tunisia, +216 1 234567 became +216 71234567.
