Groups Seek “Correction” of FCC Decision on TCPA Exemptions for Certain Informational Calls to Residences

As TCPAWorld previously reported, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) may have unintentionally expanded prior express written consent requirements when it recently codified certain Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) exemptions for informational prerecorded or artificial voice calls to residential lines and imposed number limits and opt-out requirements. https://tcpaworld.com/2021/01/18/written-consent-required-for-informational-calls-how-the-fccs-recent-tcpa-ruling-may-have-unintentionally-expanded-pewc-requirements/

A group of trade associations led by the American Bankers Association (Group) has now formally asked the FCC to issue an erratum correcting this error. On January 27, 2021, the group filed an ex parte presentation notice reporting on a telephonic meeting with the FCC’s Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau (Bureau) at which they did so. https://ecfsapi.fcc.gov/file/10128219934025/ABA_JointTrades_ExParteLetter_TCPA_Exemptions_Error_2021_01_27_final.pdf
