(Perdue) https://tcpaworld.com/2021/07/07/perdue-campaign-to-fcc-declare-that-certain-ringless-voice-mails-are-not-calls-under-the-tcpa/.
Perdue’s Petition requests that the agency “‘clarify that delivery of a voice message directly to a voicemail box through ringless voicemail (‘RVM’) technology does not constitute a ‘call’ subject to prohibitions on the use of an automatic telephone dialing system (‘ATDS’) or an artificial or prerecorded voice under Section 227(b)(1)(A)(iii) of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (‘TCPA’) or Section 64.1200(a)(1)(iii) of the [Commission’s] rules.’”
The Commission, by Public Notice dated September 3, 2021, now seeks public comment on Perdue’s request https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments/DA-21-1102A1.pdf.
Per the Public Notice, initial comments are due by October 4, 2021; reply comments are due by October 19, 2021.
