  • On August 19, 2008, the FTC issued a Final Rule to amend the Telemarketing Sales Rule regarding prerecorded telemarketing... Most of these regulations went into effect in the months following the rule, but the FTC granted a one-year grace period for telemarketers to continue making prerecorded calls to consumers with existing business relationships. That one-year period expired at the end of last month, meaning companies must comply with all provisions of the Final Rule by September 1, 2009.
