New Decree against Spam

On 14 August 2020, the Government issued Decree No. 91/2020/ND-CP on anti-spam text messages, emails and calls ("Decree 91"). Decree 91 will take effect from 1 October 2020 and replace Decree No. 90/2008/ND-CP against spam ("Decree 90"). Unlike its predecessor, Decree 91 now explicitly captures phone calls within the scope of spam.
