Quick Timeline: FCC Seeking Input on Blocking of Legitimate Calls
Posted April 14, 2021 by CUNA Advocacy

On April 14, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued a Public Notice seeking input on call blocking in order to produce its second staff report to Congress on the topic. Among other matters, the FCC asks about the efficacy of call blocking, the rate of false positives (blocking good calls), and experience with remedial efforts to get calls unblocked.  It is looking for information covering the last year. Submissions to the FCC are due April 30. If your credit union has had experience with having its calls blocked, please reach out to Elizabeth LaBerge
