Current as of: 2009
1. The attorney general shall establish and maintain a list of telephone numbers of subscribers who object to receiving telephone solicitations. The attorney general may fulfill the requirements of this section by contracting with an agent for the establishment and maintenance of the list or by using the national do-not-call registry established and maintained by the federal trade commission under title 16, Code of Federal Regulations, part 310. The attorney general may adopt rules governing the establishment, distribution, and operation of the do-not-call list, as the attorney general deems necessary and appropriate to fully implement the provisions of this chapter, in addition to the following provisions:
a. Any subscriber may contact the attorney general or the attorney general's agent and give notice, in the manner prescribed by the attorney general, that the subscriber objects to receiving telephone solicitations. The attorney general shall add the telephone number of any subscriber who gives notice of objection to the list maintained pursuant to this section.
b. Any notice given by a subscriber under this section is effective for five years unless revoked by the subscriber. Any subsequent notices given by the same subscriber related to a different telephone number are separate from the original notice.
c. The attorney general shall allow subscribers to give notice under this section by mail, telephone, or electronically.
d. The attorney general shall establish the procedures by which a person wishing to make telephone solicitations may obtain access to the list. To the extent practicable, those procedures shall allow for access to paper or electronic copies of the list.
e. The attorney general may include in the list established under this section subscribers who live in North Dakota and are included in the national do-not-call registry established and maintained by the federal trade commission under title 16, Code of Federal Regulations, part 310. The attorney general may provide to the federal trade commission the telephone numbers of North Dakota subscribers who are in the attorney general's do-not-call list or who
have otherwise notified the attorney general of the subscriber's objection to receiving telephone solicitations for inclusion in the national do-not-call registry.
f. A person or entity desiring to make telephone solicitations shall pay a fee, payable to the attorney general, for access to, or for paper or electronic copies of, the list established under section 51-28-09. The fee for acquisition of the list may not exceed two hundred dollars per quarter, or eight hundred dollars per year.
2. Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, the attorney general may designate the national do-not-call registry established and maintained by the federal trade commission under title 16, Code of Federal Regulations, part 61, as the state do-not-call list.
