Telemarketing No Call List

March 5th, 2021

The telemarketing no call list is something that you most
definitely need to be familiar with and aware of if you engage in
telemarketing as part of your marketing and sales program, if you
outsource telemarketing duties, or if you provide telemarketing
services for other companies.

Historically, telemarketing has been deemed as an annoyance by
many due to unscrupulous practices of telemarketers who solicit
business through telemarketing, making unwanted calls, sometimes
at unreasonable hours, and basically being a nuisance to the
people they call.

In addition to the standard annoyances, the telemarketing
industry has also developed a bad reputation due to deceptive and
fraudulent practices of some telemarketers.

The federal government has taken some initiatives to prevent
telemarketing fraud, to improve telemarketing practices, and
ultimately to eliminate unnecessary aggravation to consumers.

The telemarketing no call list (also called the “National Do Not
Call Registry”), established in a joint effort between the
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Federal Trade
Commission (FTC) is central to federal efforts to regulate the
telemarketing industry.

The main laws that apply to telemarketing practices are the
Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Telemarketing
and Consumer Fraud Abuse Prevention Act (TCFAPA) enforced by the
FCC and the FTC respectively.

If you engage in telemarketing in any form or fashion, you should
familiarize yourself with these two Acts and the regulations
associated with them.
