Do-Not-Call Registry Legislation

Law:

15 U.S.C. §§ 6151-6155

The Do-Not-Call Implementation Act authorizes the FTC to collect fees for the implementation and enforcement of a Do-Not-Call Registry. Public Law No. 108-82 expressly authorizes the FTC under Section 3(a)(3)(A) of the Telemarketing and Consumer Fraud and Abuse Prevention Act to implement and enforce a Do-Not-Call Registry, and ratified the Registry provision of the FTC’s Telemarketing Sales Rule, 16 C.F.R. § 310.4(b)(1)(iii). The Implementation Act has been amended by the Do-Not-Call Registry Fee Extension Act of 2007, specifying the Registry fees for telemarketers and revising reporting requirements in the Telemarketing and Consumer Fraud and Abuse Prevention Act; and by the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, prohibiting automatic expiration of registry listings.
