FCC Chairwoman Rosenworcel Circulates Order to Classify Ringless Voicemail Messages as Calls Under the TCPA [telecom]

On February 2, 2022, FCC Chairwoman Rosenworcel announced that she has presented to her fellow Commissioners an order that will declare that technology that leaves "ringless" voicemails on consumer cell phones is subject to FCC robocalling restrictions. The order is described as ruling that ringless voicemails are calls under the TCPA and thus require prior express consent when sent to cellular telephone numbers. The Chairwoman's proposal will be voted upon by the Commissioners "on circulation," which does not establish an immediate deadline for FCC action. Unlike orders under consideration at Open Meetings, the text of a circulation item is not publicly released.
