Federal Register Notice on Implementation of Section 8 of TRACED Act: TCPA Exemptions

TCPAWorld has previously reported on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) final action implementing Section 8 of the TRACED Act, codifying and modifying certain exemptions under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). (https://tcpaworld.com/2020/12/30/breaking-fcc-issues-ruling-limiting-call-volumes-permitted-under-tcpa-exemptions/)

The FCC’s December 30, 2020 Report and Order (Report and Order) noted that for several reasons “the appropriate time for implementation of these amended rules [for certain calls to residential lines] is six months.” Because of Paperwork Reduction Act requirements, the FCC added that “the six month period before compliance is required will commence upon publication in the Federal Register of Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval of the rules.”

Notice of the Report and Order was published in the Federal Register on February 25, 2021. The notice (https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2021-02-25/pdf/2021-01190.pdf), consistent with the Report and Order implementation timing discussion, states that the amendments subject to OMB approval “are delayed indefinitely.” The FCC “will publish a document in the Federal Register announcing the effective date of these amendments.”

TCPAWorld will continue to monitor.
