FCC Approves Creation of Re-assigned Numbers Database

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted new rules to create a re-assigned numbers database to help reduce unwanted calls to consumers. 

Callers using the database will be able to find out if telephone numbers assigned to consumers have been disconnected and made eligible for re-assignment. Any such numbers can then be purged from call lists. 

To encourage use of the database, the FTC will provide a safe harbor from liability for any calls to re-assigned numbers caused by database errors.
