South Africa’s Wireless Application Service Providers’ Association (WASPA) has ratified an update to its code of conduct to align with new regulations on Premium Rated Services.
The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) published new regulations on the Code of Conduct for Premium Rated Services on 4 November 2016.
WASPA said that its new code of conduct also aligned with the Numbering Plan Regulations that ICASA published in March last year.
All changes made to its code relate to these alignments and are immediately applicable to its over 400 members, WASPA said.
The WASPA Code of Conduct has been revised eleven times since May 2014 to reflect new challenges within the wireless application service provider industry.
It contains provisions relating to how mobile content and services may be advertised, and WASPA said these are vigorously enforced.
