Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)

Tuesday, June 6, 2017 - 11:00am


Recent Updates on the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) are available on the Institute for Legal Reform's site.



Originally enacted in 1991, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) is woefully antiquated because it fails to recognize the ubiquitous nature of mobile devices in our society today.  As a result, the TCPA is harming the ability of businesses and other organizations to effectively and efficiently deliver important, non-marketing, time-sensitive information to consumers’ mobile devices.  These types of informational calls and texts include alerts concerning data breaches, fraud, drug recalls, flight delays, power outages, package delivery, prescription refills, upcoming appointments, etc.

2017 U.S. Chamber Policy Priorities – TCPA

Support modernization of the TCPA to ensure that consumers can receive important non-marketing, time-sensitive information on their mobile devices and that businesses have the ability to provide their customers with this type of information.
