We had shared in a previous article that natural and legal entities that deliver electronic commercial messages were now required to register with the Centralized Commercial Message Management System (“IYS”). The deadline for service providers to transfer opt-in consents of recipients to IYS was initially set as 1 June 2020 but this deadline was extended to 31 August 2020 due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Accordingly, our clients who deliver electronic commercial messages must register with IYS and transfer the opt-in consents collected from their recipients to IYS by 31 August 2020Opt-in consents that have not been transferred to IYS until 31 August 2020 will be considered invalid as of 1 September 2020.

Please see our previous article for further information, and do not hesitate to contact us at for any questions you may have.
