Wisconsin's No Call law was
passed by the Wisconsin Legislature and signed by the Governor
in 2001. The law will reduce, but not eliminate, unwanted telemarketing
calls to residential telephone numbers.
The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection
(DATCP) has drafted the rules mandated by the law.
The following documents are available for review.
- ATCP 127, Subchapter V, Final No Call Rule-Effective December 1, 2002

to create a telemarketing "no call" list.

Signing up for the No Call List identifies you as someone who
doesn't wish to receive telemarketing calls. Telemarketers must
purchase the No Call List and refrain from calling those numbers.
