TCPA

TCPA is the acronym for Telephone Consumer Protection Act. This United States regulation was passed in 1991 and limits the use of automatic dialing systems, artificial or prerecorded voice messages, SMS text messages, and fax machines. It also specifies several technical requirements for fax machines, autodialers, and voice messaging systems—principally with provisions requiring identification and contact information of the entity using the device to be contained in the message.
