The Rule, which implements Titles II and III of the Telephone Disclosure and Dispute Resolution Act (TDDRA), requires the disclosure of cost and other information regarding pay-per-call services and establishes dispute resolution procedures for telephone-billed purchases (i.e., charges for pay-per-call services or other charges appearing on a telephone bill other than telecommunications charges). The disclosure requirements ensure that consumers are adequately informed of the costs they can expect to incur in using a pay-per-call service, that they will not be liable for unauthorized non-toll charges on their telephone bills, and that they have certain dispute resolution rights and obligations with respect to such telephone-billed purchases.

The FTC estimates a decrease from the previous annual burden estimate of 1,165,428 hours (2015) down to 1,029,570 hours (2021). This decrease is due to an adjustment stemming from the ongoing changes in the pay-per-call industry.
