Vietnam’s Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) is working on a draft decree which seeks to allow organizations and individuals to refuse spam calls and text messages to their phone numbers. The draft decree on preventing spam text messages, calls, and emails and regulations on advertising has been released by MIC. The tentative document specifies measures to deal with the issue, including building and implementing spam prevention systems, monitoring and sharing information on sources of spam messages, and monitoring the activities of advertising services. Particularly, mobile subscribers will be able to register their numbers in a ‘do not disturb’ list to opt out of receiving spam text messages and unwanted calls.
