How to Comply with FCC Robocall Mandates

A Quick Reference Guide for CSPs

Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all sizes were tasked with implementing STIR/SHAKEN call authentication and robocall mitigation solutions by June 2021. And, they must file certifications in the FCC’s new Robocall Mitigation Database about what actions they’ve taken.

After September 28, 2021, intermediate and terminating CSPs also had to block calls from service providers that are not listed in the database. The result? Some subscribers may be unable to complete calls. With multiple reports issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), it’s tough to keep up with the latest rules and regulations.
