SMS Short Code Compliance: What You Need to Know

Short code texting can be a powerful marketing tool, but it's important to be compliant with the rules and regulations. There are two main sets of rules to follow: the CTIA's rules and the TCPA rules.

CTIA Rules

The CTIA (Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association) is a trade association that represents wireless carriers in the United States which actively audits all SMS short code programs to ensure companies are following the rules and to keep consumers protected. The CTIA has developed a set of best practices for short code texting that businesses should follow. These best practices include:

  • Obtaining express consent from recipients before sending them messages.
  • Providing clear and concise information about how recipients can opt out of receiving messages.
  • Not sending messages that are spam or unsolicited.

TCPA Rules

The TCPA (Telephone Consumer Protection Act) is a federal law that protects consumers from unwanted telemarketing calls and texts. The TCPA prohibits businesses from sending text messages to consumers without their prior consent.

In addition to the CTIA rules and the TCPA rules, businesses should also be aware of the specific regulations in their state. Some states have stricter regulations than others.

By following the rules and regulations, businesses can ensure that they are using short code texting in a compliant way. This will help to protect their reputation and avoid legal problems.

Here are some additional tips for staying compliant with SMS short code regulations:

  • Use a reputable short code provider.
