We are pleased to present our latest Monthly TCPA Digest, providing insights and news related to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). In this issue's Regulatory Update, we discuss a Public Notice issued by the FCC's Wireline Competition Bureau (WCB) seeking comment on two recurring obligations relating to the FCC's caller ID authentication rules, which were both imposed by the Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence Act (TRACED Act). The WCB seeks comment on extensions for the implementation of STIR/SHAKEN call authentication technology that it granted in 2020 and the efficacy of STIR/SHAKEN at eliminating unlawful calls. We also cover a Memorandum of Understanding between the FCC and the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) that calls for the two agencies to provide mutual assistance in their robocall enforcement activities.
