The upper house of the Dutch parliament (Eerste Kamer) has adopted the legislative proposal to amend the Dutch Telecommunications Act. For more information on the amendments with respect to telemarketing and unsolicited electronic communications we gladly refer you to our earlier newsletter on this subject as attached. Furthermore, other topics are dealt with, for example consumers will be able to terminate their telecom subscriptions more easily. It is expected that the measures enter into force on 1 July 2009.
