Back to Anti-Spam Laws and Authorities


Singapore - Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore

The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) is a statutory board of the Singapore Government. It operates under the Ministry of Information, Communications and The Arts (MICA). IDA has proposed a multi-pronged approach towards the control of spam. This approach would involve all stakeholders and consist of Public Education, Industry Self-regulation, International Co-operation and Legislation. IDA has received broad consensus from the public consultation to adopt this approach. Currently, IDA is working with the Attorney General's Chambers to finalise the details of the legislation for Spam control.
Spamming per se is currently legal, but IDA is drafting the spam control legislation together with the help of Attorney-General Chambers and input from public consultation on this matter.
