Letters of Intent to Become FCC’s Registered Robocall Traceback Consortium Due By May 27


The 2019 Pallone-Thune Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence Act (TRACED Act) directed the FCC to issue rules aimed at establishing and registering a consortium that would conduct private-led efforts to trace back the origin(s) of suspected unlawful robocalls. In July 2020, USTelecom–The Broadband Association’s Industry Traceback Group was designated as the registered consortium. Because the TRACED Act also requires the FCC to consider new interested consortia on an annual basis, the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau now requests interested consortia (besides the incumbent Industry Traceback Group) to provide Letters of Intent by May 27, 2021.
