The FCC’s Prior Express Written Consent rule revisions to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) were published in the Federal Register on Friday, January 26th, which means the revisions will become effective on January 27th, 2025. The revisions include:
- Prior express written consent (PEWC) must be obtained on a one-to-one basis. Lead generation forms will not be able to list several sellers in a single consent form or use “marketing partners” hyperlinks to obtain consent for multiple sellers.
- Calls and texts must be logically and topically related to the website where the consumer provided consent.
Additionally, the FCC codified that the TCPA’s Do Not Call (DNC) rules apply to texts.
