4.1 Service Description
4.1.1 Overview

The Policy Event Exposure Service, as defined in 3GPP TS 23.502 [3] and 3GPP TS 23.503 [4], is provided by the

Policy Control Function (PCF).
This service:

- allows NF service consumers to subscribe to, modify and unsubscribe from policy control events; and

- notifies NF service consumers with a corresponding subscription about observed events on the PCF.

The types of observed events include:
- PLMN identifier notification;

NOTE: Within the PLMN identifier notification event the PLMN Identifier or SNPN Identifier where the UE is

currently located is provided. The SNPN Identifier consists of the PLMN Identifier and the NID.

- Access type change;
- Satellite backhaul category change;
- Service area coverage change; and
- Successful or unsuccessful outcome of the UE Policy Delivery.

The target of the event reporting may include a group of UE(s) or any UE (i.e. all UEs). When an event occurs, to which

the NF service consumer has subscribed, the PCF reports the requested information to the NF service consumer based

on the event reporting information definition requested by the NF service consumer (see 3GPP TS 23.502 [3],

clause 4.15.1).
4.1.2 Service Architecture

The 5G System Architecture is defined in 3GPP TS 23.501 [2]. The Policy and Charging related 5G architecture and

signalling flows are also described in 3GPP TS 29.513 [8].

The Policy Event Exposure Service (Npcf_EventExposure) is part of the Npcf service-based interface exhibited by the

Policy Control Function (PCF).

The only known NF service consumer of the Npcf_EventExposure service is the Network Exposure Function (NEF).

The Npcf_EventExposure service is provided by the PCF and consumed by NF service consumers (e.g. NEF), as shown

in figure 4.1.2-1 for the SBI representation model and in figure 4.1.2-2 for reference point representation model.

release of the specification.
