"[The Enforcement Bureau is committed] to strong, vigorous, and fair enforcement of the Commission's rules. . . . The Enforcement Bureau will periodically release Enforcement Advisories, which are designed to educate businesses about and alert consumers to what's required by FCC rules, the purpose of those rules and why they're important to consumers, as well as the consequences of failures to comply. We hope that these Advisories will become a familiar tool for industry and their counsel as they conduct periodic compliance reviews and increase their internal, self-policing efforts." Statement of P. Michele Ellison, Chief, Enforcement Bureau on Issuance of the Bureau's First Enforcement Advisories, January 15, 2010
