ABIA Hosts Compliance Webinar on Telemarketing Compliance Basics

Yesterday, the American Bankers Insurance Association (ABIA) hosted a Compliance Webinar on Telemarketing Basic Compliance.  Chrys Lemon and Michael Aphibal, McIntyre & Lemon, PLLC discussed how federal regulators expect banks and insurance agencies to adhere to certain rules when telemarketing.  This webinar provided an overview of the FTC and FCC rules governing telemarketing, including the Telemarketing Sales Rule, the Do-Not-Call registry, the application of an existing business relationship exception to affiliates, and the effects of the FCC's July 2015 Interpretive Ruling on telemarketing. The webinar also briefly explored the CFPB's actions on telemarketing and how it has focused on practices that could be unfair, deceptive, or abusive.
