Telemarketing and Telephone Solicitation Policies (Do Not Call)

The federal Do-Not-Call Registry became effective October 1, 2003. The relevant federal Do-Not-Call rules are set forth in 47 C.F.R. – 64.1200 of the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) rules, and 16 C.F.R. Part 310 of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rules. These rules apply to any person conducting telemarketing or telephone solicitation. The definitions listed below maybe helpful, but are no means the complete list of requirements of the Do-Not-Call rules. Integra highly recommends that you visit the web site provided at the bottom of this page for additional Do-Not-Call information. If you have further questions about compliance with the rules you may want to contact the FCC or consult with an attorney.

Effective January 29, 2004, the Do-Not-Call rules also require that persons engaging in telemarketing must transmit caller identification (caller ID) information. The information transmitted must, at a minimum, provide the called party with a telephone number that permits the called party to make a do-not-call request during regular business hours. Where available, the name of the telemarketer must also be transmitted.
