In February, the FCC adopted several changes to its telemarketing rules, including a new requirement that telemarketers must receive express written consent to send certain autodialed or prerecorded message calls. On June 11, the FCC’s order was published in the Federal Register. The Federal Register summary is available here.
As a result, the new rules will take effect beginning July 11, 2012. As explained after the jump, some of the rules will not take effect until OMB approves the new recordkeeping requirements. Nevertheless, publication in the Federal Register starts the clock for appeals and petitions for reconsideration of the rules.
