We are pleased to present the latest edition of our Monthly TCPA Digest, providing insights and news related to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). This month’s issue includes insight on Calfornia’s Consumer Call Protection Act. Signed on October 2, the law requires providers to implement technologies to protect Californians from deceptive robocalls. To avoid liability, providers should implement the STIR and SHAKEN technologies by January 1, 2021. In regulatory news, the FCC released a public notice seeking comment on a Yodel Technologies petition asking for clarification that a call using soundboard technology — enabling brief, prerecorded voice messages that encourage interaction — isn’t the type of prerecorded call that the TCPA prohibits. The FCC hasn’t yet ruled on a similar petition filed by NorthStar Alarm Services in January. The FCC also released recommendations on robocall blocking. See our article for details.
