A regulator is a federal regulating organisation, that controls and regulates a market in order to guarantee fair competition. On the telecommunications market a regulator is usually also in charge of the connection, reservation and activation of phone numbers in the PSTN.
For international freephone numbers, or UIFN, the monitoring organisation is not a national regulatory body, but the supranational organization ITU, which is part of the UN.
