What Is TCPA Compliance?
The TCPA, also known as the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, was put in place to ensure consumers aren’t consistently bothered by marketing telephone calls they do not want to receive. Believe it or not, there was a day and a time where a telephone may ring off the hook throughout the day from marketers that were looking to garner your business. The TCPA was implemented to prevent this, so consumers weren’t constantly inundated with annoying phone calls throughout the day.
Comply With Confidence
Several steps can be taken to ensure that TCPA compliance is strictly adhered to. Ensuring that your information is accurate and updated is critical. Taking the extra action to verify all of the contact information you have gathered can save you time and money and help maintain compliance with the TCPA.
Overview of Rules
To ensure you remain with TCPA compliance, you must understand the main requirements of this act. They are as follows:
Be Conscious of the National Do Not Call Registry
If a person has opted to be added to the National Do Not Call Registry and you decide to call them anyway, you could place yourself in a position to face substantial fines and penalties. Being conscious of this list and whether a number has been placed on it is essential.
Avoid Recordings or Simulated Voices
When a person picks up the phone, they expect to speak with a live person. The reality is that to ensure that TCPA compliance is maintained, the best thing to do is to avoid artificial voice calls unless you receive written consent ahead of time.
Be Aware of the Time and Day
The TCPA mandates that marketing phone calls can only be made during certain hours of the day. Permissible calling times vary by state. Many states also prohibit marketing calls on Sundays and certain holidays.
Screen for Phone Number Changes
The FCC recently launched its Reassigned Numbers Database (RND) which allows callers to query whether a phone number has been permanently disconnected or reassigned since the consumer provided consent. Calls to reassigned numbers are frustrating to consumers who did not request them and are a waste of time and money for marketers. Using the RND is not required, but the FCC is strongly incentivizing marketers to use it by providing TCPA safe harbor for calls made to reassigned numbers that were queried and received a result indicating that the number had not been reassigned.
