The WASPA - Do Not Contact System became mandatory for all WASPA members at the Annual General Meeting held in Johannesburg on 5th March 2020.

This means that members sending direct marketing to numbers on this list are in breach of the following clause of the WASPA Code of Conduct:

"16.5. Unless the target person has expressly or implicitly requested or agreed otherwise, any member authorising, directing or conducting any direct marketing must not direct or permit any person associated with that activity to direct or deliver any communication for the purpose of direct marketing to:

(c) a person who has registered a pre-emptive block with a registry established by WASPA."

It was agreed that all members would be required to check the WASPA DNC list on at least a weekly basis.

As an SMSPortal customer, you are not required to check the WASPA DNC list whatsoever. SMSPortal have built an integration with WASPA that fully handles this process without any further onus on you.
