International combat against spam

The Consumer Ombudsman is involved in the international combat against spam via his participation London Action Plan.

London Action Plan (LAP)

The DCO endorsed ICPEN’s London Action Plan on Spam (LAP) in October 2004. The aim of the plan is to establish national contact points that can investigate cross-border spam and exchange knowledge and experience about enforcement, investigation and technical aspects of spam.

More than thirty countries worldwide, including the USA and China, have joined the LAP so far.

What makes LAP stand out is the involvement of the private sector. The fact that spam filter companies, security companies and domain administrators, inter alia, contribute opens up the possibility of a more integrated fight against spam.
