Nuisance Calls Commission

Role of the group

We convened this short-life group following the Nuisance Calls Summit in June 2016. The aim is to find practical solutions to the problem of unwanted calls and develop an action plan showing how to deliver long term differences and reduce the impact of this nuisance on people's lives.

Members represent key regulatory, industry and consumer groups stakeholders with interests in preventing nuisance calls. The group met three times on 30 November 2016, 18 January 2017 and 15 March 2017. On 11 September 2017 the Scotland's Response to Nuisance Calls Commission – Action Plan was published.
