FCC sets compliance date for updated TCPA rules

The FCC recently issued a decision on petitions to reconsider updated TCPA call limit rules. The compliance date for these rule changes has been announced. Here’s an overview.

These call limit rule changes were made in response to the TRACED Act. Section 8 requires the Commission to make its TCPA rules more specific in terms of callers, called parties, and call limits. Here’s a table listing the call limits:

The complete rules are quite detailed.
