Electronic Transactions Act (Chapter 308B)

Part VII (§§23-24) of the Electronic Transactions Act deals with the issue of ‘Intermediaries’. The statutory provisions generally employ a ‘mere conduit’ approach, and do not require intermediaries to actively monitor electronic records and transmissions. §24(2) gives the Minister the power (when notified by an intermediary that an electronic record may give rise to liability), to direct the intermediary to (a) remove electronic questions in question, (b) cease provision of services to persons, or (c) cease to provide services in relation to the specific electronic record in question.
