Wisconsin Requires Proof of Subscription to National Do-Not-Call Registry

Please be aware that in anticipation of Wisconsin eliminating its separately maintained Do-Not-Call list and designating the National Do-Not-Call (DNC) Registry as the state DNC list. The state is requiring all registered telephone solicitors to provide proof that it is subscribed to the National DNC Registry.

As Gryphon’s previous Customer Alert stated, effective August 1, 2014, telephone solicitors will only need to certify against the National Do-Not-Call Registry when calling into the state of Wisconsin. Wisconsin will continue to require telephone solicitors to register annually, and pay an annual fee based on the number of telephone lines used by the telephone solicitor to make telephone solicitations.

This week the Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (DATCP) issued a notice to all registered solicitors that in order to maintain your organization’s registration, you must provide the DATCP with your Subscription Account Number (SAN) to the National DNC Registry by August 1, 2014.

Gryphon’s List Management Services (LMS) and Marketer Registration Services (MRS) are available to facilitate your registrations, subscriptions, renewals and meet all associated bonding, registered agent, and other compliance challenges associated with do-not-contact list and solicitor registration requirements.
