Re: Application by the Receivables Management Association of Canada Inc. Pursuant to Part 1 of the CRTC Rules of Practice and Procedure to request a modification of the Unsolicited Telecommunications Rules and the use of Automatic Dialing-Announcing Devices
Dear Mr. Ball:
The Commission is in receipt of the above-noted Part I application from the Receivables Management Association of Canada (8665-R53-201408303).
Prior to the receipt of your application, the Commission had received Part I applications from the Government of Quebec (8662-G4-201406041), Total Credit Recovery (8665-T170-21406835), the Coalition of Collection Agencies (8665-C208-201407503) and the Ontario Society of Collection Agencies (8665-T173-201407768), which raised similar concerns to yours about the application of the Commission’s Unsolicited Telecommunications Rules.
In a procedural request dated 20 August 2014, Forum Research Inc. submitted that these four proceedings should be merged in order to reduce the burden on interested parties and to promote a more efficient process.
In its letter dated 29 August 2014, Commission staff responded to these comments and notified the parties that, having regard to the similarities between these applications, there would be a suspension of the proceedings and the relevant deadlines for these applications, pending a determination by the Commission as to the appropriate process to more effectively manage these applications and to reduce the burden on interested parties.
As your application raises issues similar in nature to those brought by the other four applications referred to above, Commission staff is suspending the proceeding initiated by your application and the associated deadlines for comments, pending a determination by the Commission with respect to process on the five applications.
A copy of this letter and all related correspondence will be added to the public records of these proceedings.
