Anti Spam Act NZ – Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007
The Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act came into force in New Zealand in 2007. It is commonly known as the Anti Spam Act NZ.
Breaching this Act (and being found guilty) can be expensive. As a few New Zealand businesses have found out. The hard way.
In New Zealand it is on the sender of the electronic message to prove s/he has permission to email the recipient. Not the other way around.
This podcast explains what you need to do to comply with the Anti Spam Act in New Zealand.
For more information you can also visit the Department of Internal Affairs website page.
This article I wrote for the Wakato Times also explains the Anti Spam Act in an easy to understand way. It’s entitled: “What if the email you send is really spam?”
