Ofcom is reviewing its policy on when to take enforcement action against a person who ‘persistently misuses an electronic communications network or service’, particularly by making silent or abandoned calls, contrary to the Communications Act 2003. Ofcom has issued a call for inputs on how its policy on nuisance calls might be improved. This is part of an overall review of enforcement powers in this area being undertaken in conjunction with the ICO.  The deadline for comments is 7 November 2014.
