Telephone Consumer Protection Act

This month new rules went into effect for the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, a law restricting telephone solicitors. First passed in 1991, the Act is enforced by rules and regulations set up by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

The new rules require clear, prior written consent from consumers before companies can make autodialed, recorded calls to landlines or mobile phones, despite any established business relationship.

companies will need unambiguous prior written consent from customers/consumers to market to them this way on mobile phones as well as landlines, even if they had an established business relationship.
