The period for which numbers are placed on the Do Not Call register has been extended to eight years.

“This also means that all numbers currently registered will automatically be extended to eight years,” said Chairman of the Australian Communications and Media Authority, Chris Chapman.

“Any new registrations will also be valid for the new period, making life easier for Australians wishing to opt out of telemarketing calls and marketing faxes, long term.”

The popularity of the register continues to grow, with 8.5 million numbers now registered. According to ACMA research conducted in 2011, close to 90% of those on the register reported a material reduction in unsolicited telemarketing calls after registration.

The Do Not Call Register is a free service where you can list Australian numbers (mobiles and landlines) that are used primarily for private or domestic purposes to opt out of receiving most types of unsolicited telemarketing calls. Fax numbers can also be listed on the register to opt out of marketing faxes.

Limited exemptions allow some public interest organisations, such as charities, to contact numbers on the register.

People can register or re-register their numbers at any time by visiting or calling 1300 792 958. The registration process is quick and easy, and takes just a few minutes.
