So, I have sent the following - lets see what happens.
Dear Phillip Lee,
I wonder if you are in a position to propose an amendment to the The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, or perhaps advise how one goes about suggesting this. Specifically an amendment to section 30 Proceedings for compensation for failure to comply with requirements of the Regulations
Here, we receive a significant number of unsolicited marketing calls and faxes even though on TPS and FPS, and undoubtably suffer damages by wasted time and resourses. However, the actual value of damages for any one call or fax will be unprovable and negligable.
What I would like to see is a financial value in the regulations as a default or minimum, much like the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 defines a £40 amount (or more if provably more).
If there was a value of, say, £50, whereby the claimant would not have to justify the value of damages, just that they were the victim of a breach of the regulations, then I can see the legislation being much more effective.
