Telemarketing "No Call" List
The Wisconsin department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) maintains a telemarketing “no call” list of consumers who do not wish to receive telemarketing calls. See Wisconsin Statutes section 100.52 and Wisconsin Administrative Code chapter ATCP 127.
Consumers may contact DATCP to sign up for the “no call” list. Telemarketers may not call consumers whose telephone numbers appear on the list. Telemarketers must register with DATCP and pay fees to finance the list compilation and distribution. On a regular periodic basis, DATCP updates the list and distribute it to registered telemarketers. Telemarketers who fail to register, or who violate the “no call” prohibition, may be prosecuted.
