Is Your VoIP Provider Registered in the Robocall Mitigation Database?

Bob Webb
As an FCC-compliant VoIP provider, staying ahead of regulatory demands is crucial, particularly in areas as critical as robocall mitigation. The advisory from Marashlian & Donahue Law Firm, focusing on VoIP providers and pure resellers, is an invaluable resource for navigating the complexities surrounding legal exposure due to inadvertently facilitating illegal traffic. This article review delves into the advisory’s key aspects, which outline the strict requirements set by the FCC for VoIP services to register in the Robocall Mitigation Database before the May 28 deadline.

The advisory does more than just reiterate the registration mandate; it provides a comprehensive analysis of the consequences of non-compliance, including the possibility of traffic being blocked by other providers, which could severely disrupt business operations. Moreover, the advisory underscores the necessity of having an updated certification and a robocall mitigation plan on file to prevent potential legal and financial penalties.

What stands out is the emphasis on the dual responsibility VoIP providers carry: not only must they comply with technical and regulatory frameworks, but they must also actively prevent their services from being exploited by bad actors. The document details how VoIP providers can enhance their customer verification processes and implement more robust monitoring systems to detect and prevent abuse.

For any VoIP provider or user, this advisory is a must-read to ensure full compliance and to understand the broader implications of FCC policies on their operations. It serves as a reminder of the ongoing responsibilities providers have to maintain the integrity of their services in a constantly evolving digital landscape.
