International Laws Concerning Robocalling
Robocall/autocall laws vary widely from country to country. The US has very specific laws concerning robocalling, which can be found in part here.
Canadian law is slightly less restrictive than US law. For the Canadian DNC and regulation visit http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/info_sht/t1032.htm You are responsible for making sure your calling lists are current and that you do not call the home phone, cellular or fax numbers that are on the National DNCL. You must maintain your own Do Not Call list. If a consumer asks not to be contacted, you must add his/her name and number to your Do Not Call list within 31 days.
You must comply with the Telemarketing Rules at all times. For example, you can only make calls and send faxes at certain times of the day, and you must identify yourself at the beginning of every call. You must also comply with the Automatic Dialing and Announcing Device Rules, which are devices that dial telephone numbers automatically and deliver a pre-recorded message.
For robocalling in other countries, it is advisable to consult an attorney from that country to familiarize yourself with that country’s specific laws. Some countries only allow robocalling for political campaigns and non-profits, while others still permit automated sales, marketing and promotional robocalls.
