Workshop to Focus on Robocall Blocking and Caller ID Spoofing

9:00 am – 3:00 pm EDT
FCC Headquarters, Commission Meeting Room, 445 12th Street SW, Washington, DC

The FCC is continuing its work helping consumers fight unwanted robocalls with a workshop that examined the current state of robocall-blocking solutions, the steps industry is taking to protect consumers from unwanted robocalls, and potential solutions to caller ID spoofing.

The workshop was an all-day event with panelists representing service providers, developers of call-blocking solutions, consumer groups and others.  See the Public Notice for the full agenda and panelists.

The FCC recently clarified that there are no legal barriers preventing carriers from offering consumers robocall-blocking technologies. The Commission also expressed an expectation that as a result of this clarification of its rules consumers will "benefit from improved call-blocking options."
