Brand vetting


Emily Champion


This article explains how you can use external vetting providers and re-vet your brand(s) for 10DLC in the Bandwidth Dashboard. To learn more about external vetting, see the 10DLC FAQ. For an overview of 10DLC, check out our 10DLC Overview.

One thing to keep in mind, Low Volume campaigns cannot have their brand tier (and throughput) increased through external brand vetting. By nature these campaigns are designed to be low volume, so instead of going through external vetting to increase throughput, customers who need a higher amount of capacity should register a different use case and pursue external brand vetting if still needed thereafter.

Note: You'll be able to see your brand details in the Bandwidth Dashboard only if you've registered your brand(s) through Bandwidth. If you've opted to register via The Campaign Registry (TCR), you must access the TCR portal to view them.
