FCC's Ruling on Autodialers to Cell Phones

New ruling by the U.S.'s Federal Communication Commission (FCC) has expanded existing restrictions on the use of autodialing technology to contact cell phones. Restrictions on the use of autodialer calls have been in place in the U.S. since 1991. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Commission's implementing rules require prior express consent for pre-recorded telemarketing calls to residential telephones and any robocall to a wireless telephone number. Prior express consent for cell phone calls must be in writing if the message is telemarketing, but can be either oral or written if the call is informational.
