Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), Internet Industry Spam Code of Practice (Mar. 16, 2006) (full-text).

Overview

The Code was developed by the Internet Industry Association (IIA) in conjunction with the Internet Associations from Western Australia and South Australia. The Code applies to all internet service providers in Australia, as well as global email service providers providing services in Australia.

The Code sets out how internet service providers and email service providers should address the sources of spam within their own networks, including actual spammers, misconfigured customer email servers and the virus-infected computers used to spread spam, otherwise known as "zombies." It also requires internet service providers and email service providers to provide customers with information about their filtering options and how to deal with spam.
