FCC TCPA Ruling Exempts Certain Clinical Trial Calls [telecom]

by David O. Klein

In a January 15, 2021 ruling, the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC") exempted certain telephone calls from the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA") ban on artificial or pre-recorded calls to residential lines. Acurian, Inc., a company that recruits participants for clinical trials, petitioned for the TCPA exemption, arguing that the calls at issue were not made for a commercial purpose, did not include any advertisements, and were otherwise not the type of intrusive telemarketing calls that the TCPA was intended to prohibit.
