New TRACED Act and Robocall Year in Review: What you need to know

It was a very busy year on the robocall front, and on 30 December 2019, President Trump signed into law the Pallone-Thune Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) Act (S. 151), which the House and Senate passed by wide, bipartisan margins earlier this year.

The TRACED Act is the most significant robocall legislation in years. It requires the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to take steps to improve call verification, reduce the number of illegal robocalls, and enhance the federal government's Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) enforcement efforts. Among other things, for example, the TRACED Act increases penalties for intentional violations by US$10,000 per call.

The speakers discussed other key robocall developments from 2019, including the Nuisance Call Act, a New York law that requires live telemarketers to give consumers the option to be added to the seller's do-not-call list, as well as an important FCC ruling that clarifies the requirements for sending online faxes.
