My company is starting to get faxed a number of forms called "Consent to Receive Faxes" from legitimate businesses. Apparently the FCC is trying to get "legitimate" faxers to get authorization from another company to send them faxes as of 7/1/05.

Does anyone know if only companies sending solicitations to non-current customers need these or does everyone?

Does the average company, faxing to it's current customers/vendors need one of these forms signed? I wouldn't think so. I'm just not sure if I should be making sure these are filled out by our vendors/customers so we can fax them without penalty.

I would also think that the fax scum/broadcasters of the world would care less about these forms and the FCC rule isn't going to be of any real benefit.

Anyone up on this FCC rule for 7/1/05?

Thanks, Rhonda

My understanding of the FCC reglations is that you may fax to anyone with whom you have "an established business relationship". You must also have the return fax number on the fax. The FCC web site has a great deal of information on the subject. I would suggest reading up if you have concerns.
