Possible expansion of Do Not Call Register

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has called for submissions on potential changes to the eligibility requirements for registration on the Do Not Call Register.

At present, telephone numbers not used primarily for private or domestic purposes and all numbers used exclusively to send or receive faxes, may not be listed on the Register. This effectively excludes businesses and other entities from being able to take advantage of the protections provided by the Register. There is some community demand to allow the registration of fax numbers and the telephone numbers used by organisations, such as small businesses.

A Departmental discussion paper was released on 15 August 2008 seeking community views on potential changes to what numbers should be eligible to be listed on the Register.

The closing date for submissions is 12 September 2008.
