Back to Anti-Spam Laws and Authorities


United Kingdom - Information Commissioner's Office 

The UK Department for Trade and Industry (DTI) implemented the new anti-spam regulation, based on the EU Directive 58/2002 (pdf), with the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulation, which came into force on 11 December 2003. The enforcement of this new instruments is under the responsibility of the Information Commissioner, however considering that several issues relating to spam also concerns  consumer protection and trade, the Office of Fair Trading is also active in this field, in particular on the subject of online scams.
