Spam Code of Practice released

Code is not expected to significantly reduce spam volumes

InternetNZ, the Telecommunications Carriers’ Forum, the Marketing Association and The ISP Association of New Zealand today released of the ISP Spam Code of Practice.

The code is now being circulated to ISPs for their signatures. The code outlines internet service provider commitments on fighting spam under a self-regulatory model and was written after consultation with ISPs, government and other interested parties. "It establishes best practices and procedures relating to spam email including spam complaint handling procedures," the authors say in a statement. “As the vast majority of spam in New Zealand comes from overseas servers, and therefore beyond the scope of the legislation, it is unlikely consumers will see any significant reduction in spam. But it is critical that New Zealand plays its part legislatively and technically to reduce the incidence of spam,” says InternetNZ executive director Keith Davidson. The code is available here.
