Phone companies must now block carriers that didn't meet FCC robocall deadline

STIR/SHAKEN requirement should limit robocalls but there are "too many loopholes."

By Jon Brodkin

In a new milestone for the US government's anti-robocall efforts, phone companies are now prohibited from accepting calls from providers that did not comply with a Federal Communications Commission deadline that passed this week. "Beginning today, if a voice service provider's certification and other required information does not appear in the FCC's Robocall Mitigation Database, intermediate providers and voice service providers will be prohibited from directly accepting that provider's traffic," the FCC said yesterday.
