Telephone and Texting Compliance News — March 2023

We are pleased to present our latest edition of Telephone and Texting Compliance News, providing insights and news related to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). In this month’s newsletter, we report on the Federal Communications Commission’s Sixth Caller ID Authentication Report and Order (Report and Order), which seeks to address unlawful robocalling and caller ID spoofing. In adopting the Report and Order, the Commission added a call authentication requirement for the first (non-gateway) intermediate provider in the path of an unauthenticated (Session Initiation Protocol) SIP call, extended several Robocall Mitigation Database filing requirements to all providers, and gave the Commission’s Enforcement Bureau new tools to combat robocalling. We also cover the Industry Traceback Group’s recent report on the progress the ITG, working with law enforcement, including the Commission, made against illegal robocalling in 2022.

If you have suggestions for topics you’d like us to feature in this newsletter, or any questions about the content in this issue, please feel free to reach out to an attorney on Mintz’s TCPA and Consumer Calling Practice team.
