Charity telemarkers under new rules.

OTTAWA -- The Canadian Radio-television and Tele-communications Commission has new regulations for charities engaged in telemarketing, as well as for-profit organizations that work on behalf of a charity. The new rules require that the telemarketer must

* immediately identify him/herself and the charity;

* provide a toll-free telephone number that an individual can use to ask questions and provide comments about the call; and

* must act immediately on the request for a do-not-call listing without requiring the individual to do anything further.

After October 1, a telemarketer must provide ah individual who wants to be placed on a do-not-call list a unique registration number to confirm receipt of each do-not-call request.
