The ACMA has filed proceedings in the Federal Court of Australia against Balaska Pty Ltd, a solar business, and V Marketing Pty Ltd, a call centre, and their respective Directors, alleging breaches of telemarketing laws.

The ACMA is alleging that V Marketing made telemarketing calls to numbers on the Do Not Call Register, and that Balaska caused the calls to be made.

The ACMA has targeted the solar power industry’s telemarketing practices in recent years, as a result of ongoing high levels of consumer complaints.

The Federal Court can impose penalties for contraventions of the Do Not Call Register Act of up to $360,000 per day for corporate offenders, and up to $72,000 per day for individuals.

Further information about the ACMA’s approach to compliance and enforcement, and recent enforcement actions is available on our website.
