Govt dials up more time on Do Not Call Register

THE Federal Government has introduced legislation to change the Do Not Call Register so households will only have to place a phone number on the register once, as opposed to re-registering after eight years.

"This change means households will no longer have to remember to renew their registration and it will help them avoid the frustration of being disturbed by unwanted telemarketing calls at dinner and other times," Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said.

There are now 9.3 million numbers registered, with about 1million added every year.

The Do Not Call Register is a free government service and registration of a phone line, mobile phone or fax number can be done online in five easy steps at www.donotcall.gov.au, by phoning 1300 792 958 or by post.
