PhonepayPlus 13th Code of Practice published

PhonepayPlus is today publishing its 13th Code of Practice and a limited number of immediate changes to the current 12th Code of Practice. Ofcom has signalled that the 13th Code proposals meet the tests set out in the Communications Act 2003 and given them provisional approval subject to scrutiny by European Union member states and the European Commission.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills will lay the Code before the European Commission for comment, before final sign-off later this year. Subject to any comments, the 13th edition of the Code will take effect on 1 July 2015.
