What is Expressed Written Consent?

EWC is clearly defined in the Telephone Consumer Protection Act 47 U.S.C. § 227. It is required prior to receiving automated phone calls or text messages. Essentially, your contacts must agree to receive communications from your organization.

In addition to actual handwritten consent, it may also be obtained from an email message, text message or an web form.

How to obtain Expressed Written Permission

There are several ways to ensure you've obtained EWC.
