Florida Passes Telephone Solicitation Recordkeeping Rules
Please be aware that Florida Governor Rick Scott has signed a bill (Senate Bill 740) that creates recordkeeping requirements for all telephone solicitations placed to Florida consumers. Effective July 1, 2018, Florida has amended its telemarketing law to require extensive recordkeeping for all ‘commercial telephone sellers.’ Telephone solicitors shall maintain all of the following information for at least 2 years after the date of the telemarketing call:
(1) The name and telephone number of each consumer contacted by a telephone sales call.
(2) All express requests authorizing the telephone solicitor to contact the consumer.
(3) Any script, outline, or presentation the applicant requires or suggests a salesperson use when soliciting; sales information or literature to be provided by the commercial telephone seller to a salesperson; and sales information or literature to be provided by the commercial telephone seller to a consumer in connection with any solicitation.
Telephone solicitors must be able to provide this information within 10 days of an oral or written request by the state of Florida.
