What is the TPS register?

Telephone marketing is a great way to introduce products or services to potential customers. However, there are strict rules in the UK on how this must be done. If a person has placed themselves on the TPS register, companies must not call them about their products or services and can be fined for doing so. The TPS register is for mobile and landline numbers.

It also applies to companies who place themselves on the Company Telephone Preference Service (CTPS). This is the business version of the TPS – and again applies to both mobile numbers and landlines.

Any company contacting people or businesses via landline or mobile must check against the TPS or CTPS register once every 28 days.

Our fully automated service checks, updates and cleanses a company’s customer data and call list against both the TPS and CTPS registers.

You can combine the TPS checking service with our data enrichment service for a fully integrated data enrichment process. This not only checks whether someone is on the TPS register but also fills in gaps where possible with additional information like their address.

Being on the TPS register is not the same as going ex-directory.

Eliminate the risk of fines

Failing to screen your call list against the TPS/CTPS register can result in up to a £500,000 fine. Reduce the risk with our easy-to-use TPS check service.

Not only is updating your marketing data easy with our TPS checks, it also helps you eliminate the risk of a fine. Any company using a call list to make marketing calls must screen against TPS/CTPS at least once every 28 days.

Fines for companies that consistently contact people who are TPS registered aren’t fixed but can be substantial. The Informational Commisioner’s Office (ICO) has issued fines that run into the tens of thousands of pounds for nuisance callers.

By regularly cleansing your data, you know you’ll be safe from such fines.
