The Telephone Preference Service (TPS) is a list of consumers (including Sole Traders and Partnerships, except in Scotland) who have registered their wish not to receive unsolicited direct marketing calls. It is a legal requirement that companies do not make such calls to numbers registered on the TPS. The original legislation was introduced in May 1999. It has subsequently been updated and now the relevant legislation is the Privacy and Electronic (EC Directive) Regulations 2003. Companies who are reported to the TPS for breach of the above regulation are included in a monthly report sent to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) the body responsible for enforcement. Order Now!

The Corporate Telephone Preference Service has been set up following the publication by DTI of the new Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) (Amendment) Regulations 2004. The new Regulations will come into force on 25 June 2004 and will amend the existing Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003. The new Regulations mean that it is unlawful for someone in business (including charities or other voluntary organisations) to make unsolicited sales and marketing calls to a telephone number allocated to a corporate subscriber if that corporate subscriber has either told that business or organisation that do not want to receive such calls or has registered the number with the Corporate TPS that they do not wish to receive such calls from any business or organisation.

All those in business (including charities and voluntary organisations) who make direct marketing telephone calls to Individuals.

This is in addition to checking such lists against in-house "do not call" lists. There is an exception to the above and that is where Individuals have already indicated to the calling business or organisation that they do not object to direct marketing telephone calls.

Genuine research calls are not deemed as direct marketing and do not need to be checked against TPS as they generally relate to information gathering or seeking of opinions whereas the purpose of a direct marketing call would be to sell or market a product or service. The Telephone Preference Service (TPS) aims to reduce live direct marketing calls and is unable to stop calls from organisations who are conducting research. You cannot make a sales/marketing call under the guise of a market research call! All sales and marketing calls require a TPS check before calling.
