Adopts US Federal Communications Commission FCC more and more measures to combat illegal robotic calls.
The committee set new rules to limit annoying automated calls, limit the number of calls that companies can make, and require telecom companies to take greater steps to ensure that their networks are not used to transmit illegal calls.
Includes the latest collection of the rules Restricted by restricting even non-marketing calls made via home phones.
Non-commercial, commercial, and not-for-profit organizations can now only make up to three calls per residential number within 30 days and must give consumers a way to unsubscribe from future calls.
And the US Federal Communications Commission had no limit on non-marketing phone calls prior to this change.
In addition, the US Federal Communications Commission has introduced new rules for voice service providers, who must now respond to requests to trace sources of illegal calls from the commission and law enforcement.
Voice service providers are now required to investigate illegal calls identified by the commission and take steps to mitigate these calls if they reach the same conclusion.
The US Federal Communications Commission says: that telecom companies must exercise due diligence in ensuring that their services are not used to create illegal trade.
Aside from implementing those new rules, the US Federal Communications Commission has expanded the safe haven for service providers to remove legal liability for barring calls at the network level.
Service providers must target calls that are highly likely to be illegal, but not unwanted, and must use human supervision.
In an effort to be more transparent, the US Federal Communications Commission is asking service providers to notify callers if they are blocked.
Telephone companies must also provide subscribers with a list of barred calls upon request and provide a status update on call barring disputes within 24 hours.
The US Federal Communications Commission said: It receives more complaints about unwanted calls than any other problem, and has been seeking for many years to limit calls that could be used to commit fraud and identity theft.
“Americans are tired and tired of unwanted and illegal robotic calls,” Ajit Pai, president of the US Federal Communications Commission, said in a statement.
