|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:I oppose creating an additional call abandonment safe harbor to allow telemarketing calls that deliver a prerecorded message to consumers with whom the seller on whose behalf the calls are made has an established business relationship. I support retention of the safe harbor provision that currently requires use of technology that ensures abandonment of no more than three (3) percent of all calls answered by a person, measured per day per calling campaign and oppose substituting the phrase 'measured over a 30-day period.'.
