Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit entities; Individuals or households; Not-for-profit institutions. Number of Respondents and Responses: 49,397 respondents; 135,607,383 responses. VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:43 Sep 15, 2008 Jkt 214001 Estimated Time per Response: .004 hours (15 seconds) to 1 hour. Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping requirement; On occasion reporting requirement; Thirdparty disclosure requirement. Total Annual Burden: 625,406 hours. Total Annual Cost: $4,590,000. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits; the statutory authority for the information collection requirements is found in the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA), Public Law 102–243, December 20, 1991, 105 Stat. 2394, which added Section 227 of the Communications Act of 1934 [47 U.S.C. 227], Restrictions on the Use of Telephone Equipment. Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: Confidentiality is an issue to the extent that individuals and households provide personally identifiable information, which is covered under the FCC’s system of records notice (SORN), FCC/CGB–1, ‘‘Informal Complaints and Inquiries.’’ A system of records for the do-not-call registry was created by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) under the Privacy Act. The FTC published a notice in the Federal Register describing the system. See 68 FR 37494, June 24, 2003. Privacy Impact Assessment: Yes. The Privacy Impact Assessment was completed on June 28, 2007. It may be reviewed at: http://www.fcc.gov/omd/ privacyact/ Privacy_Impact_Assessment.html. Needs and Uses: The reporting requirements included under this OMB Control Number 3060–0519 enable the Commission to gather information regarding violations of the Do-Not-Call Implementation Act (Do-Not-Call Act). If the information collection was not conducted, the Commission would be unable to track and enforce violations of the Do-Not-Call Act. The Do-Not-Call rules provide consumers with several options for avoiding most unwanted telephone solicitations. This national do-not-call registry supplements the current companyspecific do-not-call rules for those consumers who wish to continue requesting that particular companies not call them. Any company, which is asked by a consumer, including an existing customer, not to call again must honor that request for five (5) years. However, a provision of the Commission’s rules allows consumers to give specific companies permission to call them through an express written agreement. Nonprofit organizations, companies with whom consumers have an established business relationship, and calls to persons with whom the telemarketer has a personal relationship PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53425 are exempt from the ‘‘do-not-call’’ registry requirements. On September 21, 2004, the Commission released the Safe Harbor Order establishing a limited safe harbor in which persons will not be liable for placing autodialed and prerecorded message calls to numbers ported from a wireline service within the previous 15 days. The Commission also amended its existing national do-not-call registry safe harbor to require telemarketers to scrub their lists against the do-not-call database every 31 days. On December 4, 2007, the Commission released the DNC NPRM seeking comment on its tentative conclusion that registrations with the Registry should be honored indefinitely, unless a number is disconnected or reassigned or the consumer cancels his registration. On June 17, 2008, the Commission released a Report and Order in CG Docket No. 02–278, FCC 08–147, amending the Commission’s rules under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) to require sellers and/or telemarketers to honor registrations with the National Do-Not-Call Registry so that registrations will not automatically expire based on the current five-year registration period. Specifically, the Commission modifies § 64.1200(c)(2) of its rules to require sellers and/or telemarketers to honor numbers registered on the Registry indefinitely or until the number is removed by the database administrator or the registration is cancelled by the consumer. In accordance with the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, the Commission revises its rules to minimize the inconvenience to consumers of having to re-register their preferences not to receive telemarketing calls and to further the underlying goal of the National Do-Not-Call Registry to protect consumer privacy rights.
