The Telemarketing Sales Rule (TSR), enacted in 1995, is the FTC’s regulation on telemarketing authorized by the Telemarketing and Consumer Fraud and Abuse Prevention Act. The TSR requires telemarketers to make specific disclosures of material information; prohibits misrepresentations; sets limits on the times telemarketers may call consumers; prohibits calls to a consumer who has asked not to be called again; and sets payment restrictions for the sale of certain goods and services.
Anyone who violates the TSR is subject to civil penalties of up to $42,530 for each violation. In addition, violators may be subject to nationwide injunctions that prohibit certain conduct and may be required to pay redress to injured consumers.
