The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) final regulations requiring prior express written consent for autodialed telemarketing calls to cell phones and pre-recorded telemarketing messages under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA") went into effect on October 16, 2013.
With these latest FCC actions in mind, telecommunication companies, mobile engagement providers, mobile marketers as well as any company that engages in mobile marketing campaigns face considerable challenges in creating and implementing effective TCPA compliance guidelines and TCPA compliant marketing programs.
In a two-hour live webcast, the Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of distinguished thought leaders and practitioners to help companies who engage in mobile marketing and various other types of mobile communications understand new compliance guidelines to prevent their businesses from falling into the pitfalls of FCC actions and the extremely costly class action litigation.
Some of the key areas addressed in this webcast:
•TCPA: an Overview of New Regulations
•What Calls Are Affected?
•What Is an Automatic Telephone Dialing System?
•What Is Express Written Consent?
•What If There Is an Existing Business Relationship?
•Are There Any Exceptions?
•What Are the Penalties for Noncompliance?
•New Regulations Already in Effect
•Compliance and Best Practices
