FTC "Do-Not-Call" Public Forum

Media Advisory

The Federal Trade Commission will host a public forum to review the "do-not-call" provision of the FTC's Telemarketing Sales Rule (TSR). The "do-not-call" provision prohibits sellers or telemarketers from calling persons who have previously stated that they do not wish to be called. This will be the first in a series of public forums that the FTC will hold as it embarks on a year-long review of the TSR.

What: FTC Public Forum on "Do-Not-Call" Provision of the TSR
When: January 11, 2000 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Where: FTC Headquarters Building, Room 432
600 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.,
Washington, D.C.

Representatives of the industry, government agencies, consumer and other groups will participate in the forum. An agenda, subject to change, is attached.
