Do Not Call Register business extension dropped

The Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy Senator Stephen Conroy has announced the Government will not proceed with the proposal to extend the Do Not Call Register to include business numbers.

The provisions in the current Bill to allow the registration of emergency service, fax, other non-business and government numbers on the Register will remain.

The Bill will also be amended to replace the current registration period for domestic numbers from 3 years with an arrangement that enables the Minister to determine the appropriate registration period, probably 5 years.

Fact Sheet

UPDATE: Amended Bill passed 13 May 2010.
