TCN Unveils Definitive Guide to Regulation F Rules for Collections Agency Call Centers

ST. GEORGE, UTAH (PRWEB) — Mar. 01 2022 — TCN, Inc., a global provider of a comprehensive cloud-based call center platform for enterprises, contact centers, BPOs, and collection agencies, today released a new eBook, titled “The Ultimate Guide to Reg F: Everything Your Collections Agency Call Center Needs To Know.” The latest eBook outlines what Regulation F means for collection agencies, details its potential impact, and provides guidance on how to navigate the new changes efficiently. 

Implemented on November 30, 2021, Regulation F is a set of new debt collection rules issued by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). It primarily serves to address how The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) applies to the many new forms of communication and technology developed and implemented since the law was first passed in 1977. Regulation F will impact all third-party collection agencies and affect how they can contact debtors, resulting in many agencies having to make changes to their operations. The details of the 653-page ruling can cause some serious issues and result in fines if the new parameters are not adhered to. 

“The reality is that change is not coming, it’s here,” said McKay Bird, marketing director at TCN. “At TCN, we’re dedicated to helping our industry community navigate the series of changes and new parameters that have been put in place by Reg F. This new eBook is one of many resources that are demonstrative of that promise, along with a comprehensive library of compliance guides, best practices and more.”
