About the London Action Plan
On October 11, 2004, government and public agencies from 27 countries responsible for enforcing laws concerning spam met in London to discuss international spam enforcement cooperation. At this meeting, a broad range of spam enforcement agencies, including data protection agencies, telecommunications agencies and consumer protection agencies, met to discuss international spam enforcement cooperation. Several private sector representatives also collaborated in parts of the meeting.
The purpose of this Action Plan is to promote international spam enforcement cooperation and address spam related problems, such as online fraud and deception, phishing, and dissemination of viruses. The participants also open the Action Plan for participation by other interested government and public agencies, and by appropriate private sector representatives, as a way to expand the network of entities engaged in spam enforcement cooperation.
