AGENCY: ACTION: The Federal Trade Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’ or ‘‘FTC’’) is amending its Telemarketing Sales Rule (‘‘TSR’’) by updating the fees charged to entities accessing the National Do Not Call Registry (the ‘‘Registry’’) as required by the Do-NotCall Registry Fee Extension Act of 2007. DATES: Effective Date: The revised fees will become effective October 1, 2013. ADDRESSES: Requests for copies of this document should be sent to: Public Reference Branch, Federal Trade Commission, Room 130, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20580. Copies of this document are also available on the Internet at the Commission’s Web site: http:// www.ftc.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ami Joy Dziekan, (202) 326–2648, BCP, Federal Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Room H– 246, Washington, DC 20580. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To comply with the Do-Not-Call Registry Fee Extension Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110–188, 122 Stat. 635) (‘‘Act’’), the Commission is amending the TSR by updating the fees entities are charged for accessing the Registry as follows: the revised rule increases the annual fee for access to the Registry for each area code of data from $58 to $59 per area code; increases the fee per area code of data during the second six months of an entity’s annual subscription period from $29 to $30; and increases the maximum amount that will be charged to any single entity for accessing area codes of data from $15,962 to $16,228. These increases are in accordance with the Act, which specifies that beginning after fiscal year 2009, the dollar amounts charged shall be increased by an amount equal to the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 amounts specified in the Act, multiplied by the percentage (if any) by which the average of the monthly consumer price index (for all urban consumers published by the Department of Labor) (‘‘CPI’’) for the most recently ended 12month period ending on June 30 exceeds the CPI for the 12-month period ending June 30, 2008. The Act also states that any increase shall be rounded to the nearest dollar and that there shall be no increase in the dollar amounts if the change in the CPI is less than one percent. For fiscal year 2009, the Act specified that the original annual fee for access to the Registry for each area code of data was $54 per area code, or $27 per area code of data during the second six months of an entity’s annual subscription period, and that the maximum amount that would be charged to any single entity for accessing area codes of data would be $14,850. The determination whether a fee change is required and the amount of the fee change involves a two-step process. First, to determine whether a fee change is required, we measure the change in the CPI from the time of the previous increase in fees. There was an increase in the fees for fiscal year 2013. Accordingly, we calculated the change in the CPI since last year, and the increase was 1.66 percent. Because this change is over the one percent threshold, the fees will change for fiscal year 2014. Second, to determine how much the fees should increase this fiscal year, we use the calculation specified by the Act set forth above, the percentage change in the baseline CPI applied to the original fees for fiscal year 2009. The average value of the CPI for July 1, 2007 to June 30, 2008 was 211.702; the average value for July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013 was 231.352, an increase of 9.28 percent. Applying the 9.28 percent increase to the base amount from fiscal year 2009, leads to an increase from $58 to $59 in the fee from last year for access to a single area code of data for a full year for fiscal year 2014. The actual amount is $59.01, but when rounded, pursuant to the Act, the amount is $59. The fee for accessing an additional area code for a half year increases to $29.51 (rounded to $30). The maximum amount charged increases to $16,228.08 (rounded to $16,228). Administrative Procedure Act; Regulatory Flexibility Act; Paperwork Reduction Act The revisions to the Fee Rule are technical in nature and merely incorporate statutory changes to the TSR. These statutory changes have been E:\FR\FM\30AUR1.SGM 30AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 169 / Friday, August 30, 2013 / Rules and Regulations adopted without change or interpretation, making public comment unnecessary. Therefore, the Commission has determined that the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act do not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b). For this reason, the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act also do not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 603, 604. Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521, the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) approved the information collection requirements in the Amended TSR and assigned the following existing OMB Control Number: 3084–0097.

To obtain access to additional area codes of data during the first six months of the annual period, each person required to pay the fee under § 310.8(c) must first pay $59 for each additional area code of data not initially selected. To obtain access to additional area codes of data during the second six months of the annual period, each person required to pay the fee under § 310.8(c) must first pay $30 for each additional area code of data not initially selected.

Telemarketing Sales Rule Fees

AGENCY: Federal Trade Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Trade Commission (the ``Commission'' or ``FTC'') 
is amending its Telemarketing Sales Rule (``TSR'') by updating the fees 
charged to entities accessing the National Do Not Call Registry (the 
``Registry'') as required by the Do-Not-Call Registry Fee Extension Act 
of 2007.

DATES: Effective Date: The revised fees will become effective October 
1, 2013.

ADDRESSES: Requests for copies of this document should be sent to: 
Public Reference Branch, Federal Trade Commission, Room 130, 600 
Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20580. Copies of this document 
are also available on the Internet at the Commission's Web site: http://www.ftc.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ami Joy Dziekan, (202) 326-2648, BCP, 
Federal Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Room H-246, 
Washington, DC 20580.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To comply with the Do-Not-Call Registry Fee 
Extension Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110-188, 122 Stat. 635) (``Act''), the 
Commission is amending the TSR by updating the fees entities are 
charged for accessing the Registry as follows: the revised rule 
increases the annual fee for access to the Registry for each area code 
of data from $58 to $59 per area code; increases the fee per area code 
of data during the second six months of an entity's annual subscription 
period from $29 to $30; and increases the maximum amount that will be 
charged to any single entity for accessing area codes of data from 
$15,962 to $16,228.
    These increases are in accordance with the Act, which specifies 
that beginning after fiscal year 2009, the dollar amounts charged shall 
be increased by an amount equal to the amounts specified in the Act, 
multiplied by the percentage (if any) by which the average of the 
monthly consumer price index (for all urban consumers published by the 
Department of Labor) (``CPI'') for the most recently ended 12-month 
period ending on June 30 exceeds the CPI for the 12-month period ending 
June 30, 2008. The Act also states that any increase shall be rounded 
to the nearest dollar and that there shall be no increase in the dollar 
amounts if the change in the CPI is less than one percent. For fiscal 
year 2009, the Act specified that the original annual fee for access to 
the Registry for each area code of data was $54 per area code, or $27 
per area code of data during the second six months of an entity's 
annual subscription period, and that the maximum amount that would be 
charged to any single entity for accessing area codes of data would be 
$14,850.
    The determination whether a fee change is required and the amount 
of the fee change involves a two-step process. First, to determine 
whether a fee change is required, we measure the change in the CPI from 
the time of the previous increase in fees. There was an increase in the 
fees for fiscal year 2013. Accordingly, we calculated the change in the 
CPI since last year, and the increase was 1.66 percent. Because this 
change is over the one percent threshold, the fees will change for 
fiscal year 2014.
    Second, to determine how much the fees should increase this fiscal 
year, we use the calculation specified by the Act set forth above, the 
percentage change in the baseline CPI applied to the original fees for 
fiscal year 2009. The average value of the CPI for July 1, 2007 to June 
30, 2008 was 211.702; the average value for July 1, 2012 to June 30, 
2013 was 231.352, an increase of 9.28 percent. Applying the 9.28 
percent increase to the base amount from fiscal year 2009, leads to an 
increase from $58 to $59 in the fee from last year for access to a 
single area code of data for a full year for fiscal year 2014. The 
actual amount is $59.01, but when rounded, pursuant to the Act, the 
amount is $59. The fee for accessing an additional area code for a half 
year increases to $29.51 (rounded to $30). The maximum amount charged 
increases to $16,228.08 (rounded to $16,228).

Administrative Procedure Act; Regulatory Flexibility Act; Paperwork 
Reduction Act

    The revisions to the Fee Rule are technical in nature and merely 
incorporate statutory changes to the TSR. These statutory changes have 
been

[[Page 53643]]

adopted without change or interpretation, making public comment 
unnecessary. Therefore, the Commission has determined that the notice 
and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act do not 
apply. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b). For this reason, the requirements of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act also do not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 603, 604. 
Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3521, the 
Office of Management and Budget (``OMB'') approved the information 
collection requirements in the Amended TSR and assigned the following 
existing OMB Control Number: 3084-0097. The amendments outlined in this 
Final Rule pertain only to the fee provision (Sec.  310.8) of the 
Amended TSR and will not establish or alter any record keeping, 
reporting, or third-party disclosure requirements elsewhere in the 
Amended TSR.

Sec.  310.8  Fee for access to the National Do Not Call Registry.

* * * * *
    (c) The annual fee, which must be paid by any person prior to 
obtaining access to the National Do Not Call Registry, is $59 for each 
area code of data accessed, up to a maximum of $16,228; provided, 
however, that there shall be no charge to any person for accessing the 
first five area codes of data, and provided further, that there shall 
be no charge to any person engaging in or causing others to engage in 
outbound telephone calls to consumers and who is accessing area codes 
of data in the National Do Not Call Registry if the person is permitted 
to access, but is not required to access, the National Do Not Call 
Registry under this Rule, 47 CFR 64.1200, or any other Federal 
regulation or law. Any person accessing the National Do Not Call 
Registry may not participate in any arrangement to share the cost of 
accessing the registry, including any arrangement with any telemarketer 
or service provider to divide the costs to access the registry among 
various clients of that telemarketer or service provider.
    (d) Each person who pays, either directly or through another 
person, the annual fee set forth in Sec.  310.8(c), each person 
excepted under Sec.  310.8(c) from paying the annual fee, and each 
person excepted from paying an annual fee under Sec.  
310.4(b)(1)(iii)(B), will be provided a unique account number that will 
allow that person to access the registry data for the selected area 
codes at any time for the twelve month period beginning on the first 
day of the month in which the person paid the fee (``the annual 
period''). To obtain access to additional area codes of data during the 
first six months of the annual period, each person required to pay the 
fee under Sec.  310.8(c) must first pay $59 for each additional area 
code of data not initially selected. To obtain access to additional 
area codes of data during the second six months of the annual period, 
each person required to pay the fee under Sec.  310.8(c) must first pay 
$30 for each additional area code of data not initially selected. The 
payment of the additional fee will permit the person to access the 
additional area codes of data for the remainder of the annual period.
