On November 29, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) declared that businesses are allowed to send a one-time text message to a consumer that confirms a request to opt-out of receiving future text communications. The FCC Declaratory Ruling is available here (see alert for link).

The Commission concluded that a consumer’s prior express consent to receive text messages includes consent to receive a final, one-time text message to confirm that the consent has been revoked.
