Qatar: consultation launched on the amendments to the 2016 Spam Regulation

Qatar’s Communications Regulatory Authority has launched a consultation on its amendments to the 2016 Spam Regulation following its regulatory review. The consultation ends on 1 October 2017. The amended regulation sets out the particular obligations on service providers, and both senders and users of electronic communications for direct marketing in line with Qatar’s regulatory framework. The aim is to align the regulation more closely with the Data Privacy Law published last year and reduce the number of spam complaints, direct marketing and cyber-crime.
