New York--American Business Media Tuesday said it would ask the Federal Communications Commission to delay implementing its newly expanded rules on unsolicited commercial faxing.

ABM also seeks to have expiration notices and renewal forms exempted from the rules.

The rules, which are to take effect Aug. 24, will require companies to have written permission from recipients in order to send faxes.

ABM is asking its members to review their fax policies due to the enhanced risk of lawsuits and is sending them sample forms that can be used to solicit the required signatures from their customers.
