Australian National Do Not Call Registry

December 26th, 2009 by admin Leave a reply »

You can bet that telemarketing companies in Australia are wishing they had a company like Do Not Call Compliance at their disposal right now! Recent reports claim that the well-known Australian Communications and Media Authority group, known as the ACMA recently failed to adequately educate consumers on what the Do Not Call Registry is and how to successfully use it to discontinue receiving telemarketing or solicitous calls.

The Australian version of the National Do Not Call Registry is known as the Do Not Call Register, or the DNCR, and is fairly new to the country. The Do Not Call Register was put into effect in the spring of 2007. Since its inception, Australian statistics report that 3.83 million numbers have been registered to the Do Not Call Register, out of an estimated 20 million eligible numbers.

However, the Australian Communications and Media Authority has now come under scrutiny for apparently failing to educate consumers on how the Do Not Call Register works. This means that consumers who may want to register their numbers on the list, or who may have registered their numbers but are still receiving unwanted calls are unaware of how to resolve their problems. Clearly, while the Australian Do Not Call Register is a step in the right direction, there is still work to be done.
