Washington, DC (October 25, 2018) – Credit Union National Association (CUNA) continues to seek clarity on several issues under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) to help reduce confusion for credit unions trying to comply with the law. In its reply comments filed to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Thursday, CUNA highlighted several credit unions and leagues emphasizing the critical importance of a narrow definition of an automated telephone dialing system (ATDS).
CUNA filed its original comment letter last week in response to a petition issued by the FCC following a decision by the Ninth Circuit Court saying that an ATDS need only have the capacity to dial stored numbers as a list to qualify as an autodialer. The overly broad definition of an autodialier in the TCPA creates uncertainty over credit unions’ ability to contact members with important account information.
This week’s filing from the trade association highlights comments submitted from:
Credit Union National Association (CUNA) is the only national association that advocates on behalf of all of America’s credit unions, which are owned by 110 million consumer members. CUNA, along with its network of affiliated state credit union leagues, delivers unwavering advocacy, continuous professional growth and operational confidence to protect the best interests of all credit unions.
