* Before screening against TPS and CTPS, we perform a pre-clean operation: only digits are kept, and dialling prefixes (0, +44, 0044) are formatted to match our database. We only check the first 10 significant digits against the registers. This means that for the entry “01304 383838 ext 555”, only the number 01304383838 will be checked.

What is Telephone Preference Service (TPS)?

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.

What is Corporate Telephone Preference Service (CTPS)?

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.

Who needs to comply with the TPS regulations?

All those in business (including charities and voluntary organisations) who make direct marketing telephone calls to Individuals. Both ‘cold’ lists and customer lists should be checked against the Telephone Preference Service register before calls are made, to ensure compliance with the Regulations. 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.

Who enforces the Regulations?

The Information Commissioner’s Office. The Telephone Preference Service itself will investigate initial complaints made to it by anyone whose registration has not prevented a call, which it should have done, but the Information Commissioner’s Office will determine any action for breach of the Regulations.

The Telephone Preference Service Ltd which administers the Telephone Preference Service register – is a subsidiary company of the Direct Marketing Association (UK) Ltd which OFCOM has appointed to manage the opt-out registers.

Are there any other 'do not call' registers?

Selectabase include TPS and CTPS. These are the only official ‘do not call’ registers. There are various organisations offering registration to other services that they claim will stop unsolicited calls. They may be commercial companies offering services for which they charge a fee and some may be fraudulent. TPS is not associated to any of these companies and Selectabase only include the official TPS and CTPS registers.

What if I enter a number which contains an international code or non-numerical characters?

The EasyCheck Online tool can screen numbers starting with +44, 0044, 0 or without a leading 0. Any non-numerical characters contained in the cell will be stripped before being screened, i.e. (01304) 123-456 is seen as 01304123456. Web TPS Check will also strip any longer numbers to the first 11 digits only, i.e. 013041234567891011 is seen as 01304123456.

Do market research calls require TPS checking?

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.

The Market Research Society (MRS) has a code of conduct which all its members must comply with. Their details are:
