You need to start by talking to your national telco regulator. They
have to approve the delegation of the Bulgarian country code. Whenever
anyone requests an ENUM delegation for a country, ITU will check with
the telco regulator for the country. This prevents impostors from
taking control over a national resource and safetguards national
interests. Details of how to request a delegation are on the ITU and
RIPE NCC web sites.

Most ENUM trials in Europe have resulted from outreach exercises,
typically some sort of workshop. The government/regulator sets up a
workshop to see what interest, if any, there is in ENUM. The usual
suspects turn up or get invited: telcos, consumer/user groups,
universities, ISPs, the ccTLD registry, independent experts on
numbering, etc, etc. What happens after that depends on the outcome of
the workshop and the attitude of the regulator or government.

There will probably be another ENUM BoF at the next RIPE meeting in
January. This might be a good place for you to find out about what's
happening in the trials and give you some ideas on how to set up and
run a trial in your country.
