Telephone Calls

The Telecommunications Regulations 2000 allows companies to record calls to:

  • provide evidence of a business transaction
  • ensure that a business complies with regulatory procedures
  • see quality standards or targets are being met
  • in the interests of national security
  • for the purpose of preventing or detecting crime
  • prevent or detect crime to investigate the unauthorised use of a phone network
  • secure the effective operation of the phone network.

Business don’t have to tell people they are recording calls if it’s for any of the above reasons, but in any other case – for example, market research – they do.

We do not conduct market research.
