Advocacy Requests Further Analysis of FCC Proposal to Require 1-1 Consent for Robotexts and RoboCalls
On December 1, 2023, Advocacy filed a request with the FCC to further analyze the impact of its proposal to require that callers covered by the FCC’s robocalling and robotexting regulations obtain consent to make such calls or texts from one customer at a time.
- Small businesses have shared with Advocacy that the FCC’s proposal could increase costs significantly for small businesses that both buy and sell sales leads.
- The FCC’s Initial and Final Regulatory Flexibility Analyses do not quantify the impact that the proposal would have on small businesses if adopted by the FCC.
- Advocacy requested that the Commission continue to seek comment from small entities on the 1-1 consent proposal and conduct a more extensive analysis of the economic impact the proposal could have on small entities before making a final decision about whether to implement the requirement.
