Prague – Operators with advertising telephone offers of services and products will be able to address only those who have explicitly wanted it. In the amendment on electronic communications, the Chamber of Deputies approved it today. It rejected the Senate regulation, which was aimed at restricting the possibilities of telecommunications marketing. The draft, which is to speed up the introduction of high-speed internet, among other things, will now be signed by the president.

The change in telemarketing will replace the current practice, according to which advertising offers must not be aimed only at those who do not explicitly wish to do so. The Office for the Protection of Competition had reservations about the restriction, which is why the Chamber of Deputies has previously postponed its effectiveness by half a year.

The Minister of Industry and Trade, Karel Havlíček (YES), did not agree with the Senate version of the draft. “The aim is so that the consumer is not bothered by unsolicited phone calls,” he said. 137 out of 142 deputies present voted in favor of confirming the original parliamentary version. The Senate amendments had previously received the support of 20 of the 135 voting members of the lower house.
