REMINDER – CONSULTATION ON BILL TO BAN COLD CALLING CLOSES SOON!
The Isle of Man Office of Fair Trading (OFT) launched a consultation on a Bill which proposes to ban cold calling in the Isle of Man last month, and it wants to remind members of the public the consultation closes on Friday 25th September 2015.
The proposed Bill would make it an offence for a trader to enter into a contract for the sale of goods and services as a result of cold calling. The Bill would cover all forms of cold calling, including by telephone. At a practical level, the main impact and real benefit would be to disrupt the activities of those who use doorstep pressure selling techniques.
The OFT looks forward to hearing the public’s views and the consultation document can be found on the OFT website at: -
The OFT has also created an online questionnaire which can be found at: -
