Do Not Call List
Unwanted telemarketing calls can be a nuisance and an intrusion upon your privacy at home. In 2002, Pennsylvanians were first given the opportunity to avoid these calls by registering for the Do Not Call list. In fact, one million citizens registered in a single two-week period that year, and millions more have registered through the past few years.
Do Not Call Current News:
Gov. Tom Wolf signed legislation that will strengthen Pennsylvania’s “Do Not Call” list. The law will take effect in 60 days.
This legislation is an amendment to the 1996 Telemarketer Registration Act that will remove the renewal requirement and will provide consumers with the ability to register their phone number(s) on the Pennsylvania Do Not Call list permanently.
All consumers that have previously registered their phone number on the PA DNC list are listed permanently and are not required to re-register.
Consumers that have not registered their phone numbers on the Pennsylvania Do Not Call list may do so by clicking here.
The measure also allows businesses to register their numbers on the state’s Do Not Call list. Businesses are encouraged to register their business phone number on or after December 3rd.
The registering process is quick and easy. Use the links on this page to enroll your telephone numbers, verify your enrollment, review details about the Do Not Call law or file a complaint if you have been receiving calls in violation of the law.

Consider these tips:
- All adults in a household can individually register under Do Not Call, even though they will be listing the same home phone number.
- Be conservative about which businesses you choose to give your phone number. Entering a contest, signing-up for a promotion cancels your Do Not Call registration with that business since authorization to call you was given and a business relationship has commenced.
- There are exceptions to the Do Not Call law allowing politicians, charitable organizations, and entities with whom there is a business relationship to place calls to your phone number.
- Consumers can revoke or cancel the business relationship and request placement on the business’ internal Do Not Call List.
