Fax Marketing Compliance

Fax marketing compliance

When sending marketing or unsolicited faxes it is important to ensure your business is compliant with the relevant legislation you must abide by, usually is governed by the jurisdiction/location of the fax recipient. Marketing faxes sent in Australia are governed by: 
  1. the Do Not Call Register Act 2006 and
  2. the Fax Marketing Industry Standard 2011
When sending any 'marketing' faxes, a minimum set of requirements for content and sending date/time must be met; the Fax Marketing Industry Standard 2011  provides all necessary information on these requirements.

When sending unsolicited 'marketing' faxes to Australian fax numbers, you must check (or ‘wash’) your number lists against the Do Not Call Register; further details are available on the Do Not Call Register - Industry Overview page.
