FCC Grants CUNA’s Request and Opens Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) Petition for Comment
Last week, the FCC granted CUNA’s request and put out its TCPA Petition for public comment. CUNA has requested the FCC to issue a declaratory ruling that the following be exempt from the TCPA’s prior express consent requirement:
- Wireless informational calls to credit union member-owners with whom the credit union has an established business relationship; or
- Where the call or text is free to the receiving party.
Comments to the petition are due November 6, 2017. We encourage all of our credit unions to comment on the petition before the comment deadline.
