As far as I know it's just: charities, political organizations, and telephone surveyors, companies with which you do business and debt collectors. I see per the link to the registry complaint page ( linked below) that even a recorded call whether you're on the list or not, can get a complaint.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
