Groups Reemphasize Need for "Correction" fo FCC Decision on TCPA Exemptions For Certain Informational Calls to Residences

As TCPAWorld previously reported, a group of trade associations led by the American Bankers Association (Group) formally asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to issue an erratum correcting an apparent unintentional expansion of prior express written consent requirements when the agency recently codified certain Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) exemptions for informational prerecorded or artificial voice calls to residential lines. 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.

The Group was back to meet telephonically on the subject with Acting Chairwoman Rosenworcel’s advisor on consumer matters on February 19, 2021, reviewing its previous request that the FCC “correct the error”.

This comes on the heels of an ex parte filing by the Edison Electric Institute reporting on its telephonic meeting with the FCC’s Bureau of Consumer and Governmental Affairs similarly urging a correction (EEI Ex Parte CG Docket No 02278 021821.pdf).

Still no word from the FCC.
