Today, the Federal Trade Commission published a final rule in the Federal Register amending its Telemarketing Sales Rule by updating the fees charged to entities accessing the National Do Not Call Registry as required by the Do-Not-Call Registry Fee Extension Act of 2007. The revised rule increases the annual fee for access to the Registry for each area code of data from $60 to $61 per area code; increases the maximum amount that will be charged to any single entity for accessing area codes of data from $16,482 to $16,714; and the fee per area code of data during the second six months of an entity's annual subscription period remains $30. The first five area codes are free, and organizations that are exempt from the Do Not Call rules, such as some charitable organizations, may obtain the entire list for free. The revised fees will become effective October 1, 2016.
