What you need to know about the 10DLC regulation and registration process:

What is 10DLC: 10 DLC is a 10 digit phone number (example 555-555-5555) that businesses use for promotional and transactional texting.

What is 10DLC regulation: It is the new anti-spam regulation brought by the US wireless carriers and industry groups in collaboration with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Mobile Marketing Association (MMA). requires all businesses sending text messages over long codes in the United States to register their phone number with The Campaign Registry (TCR).

Why 10DLC regulation?

The idea here is you must own and declare the messages 💬 you send. And help mobile carriers know that you do not spam consumers. It is a step in the right direction to prevent spam and increase accountability in the entire messaging ecosystem.❤️

Consequences of non-compliance:  Businesses that do not register for 10DLC by May 31, 2023, will have to pay surcharges and could face messaging disruption starting June 1, 2023.. This could directly affect the performance of all their customer-facing functions.
