​​The Professional Association for Customer Engagement (PACE) is pleased to announce the addition of Puerto Rico to the PACE USA DNC Regulatory Guide. The PACERegulatoryGuide.com series has been available for over 10 years and has been touted as the teleservices industry’s compliance bible.

The guide covers federal (both FTC and FCC) and state-specific telemarketing and TCPA regulations. State-specific includes all contiguous states, Alaska, Hawaii and now Puerto Rico. The new Puerto Rico section includes a summary of the applicable rules with links to the applicable bills, laws or statutes. Summaries by categories include several areas of telemarketing compliance such as Registration Requirements, Call Restrictions, Solicitation Disclosures, Call Monitoring rules and much more. This information is organized by topic as well as by state/territory.

“We continue to expand the information contained in the Regulatory Guides to meet the needs of our subscribers and telemarketing compliance professionals,” said Dean Garfinkel, administrator of the PACE Regulatory Guide.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
