Unsolicited Electronic Messages Ordinance (Chapter 593) - Points to Note


     To contain the problem of unsolicited electronic messages, the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Ordinance (UEMO) and the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Regulations (UEMR) have been enacted in 2007. 
     Namely, the UEMO regulates the sending of Commercial Electronic Messages (CEMs) with a “Hong Kong link” and the UEMR prescribes detailed requirements relating to “sender information”, "unsubscribe facility”, and “unsubscribe facility statement” to be included in messages. Schools should observe and comply with the relevant provisions under the UEMO and UEMR.

  • To let schools have deeper understanding of the UEMO and UEMR and the application of the UEMO and UEMR to schools, the Office of the Telecommunications Authority held two identical briefing sessions on 17 and 18 March 2008.
