Bahamas Forging Ahead With E-Commerce Legislation

Bahamas Financial Services Board

17 November 2000


This story is reproduced by kind permission of the Bahamas Financial Services Board at http://www.bfsb-bahamas.com

Earlier in the year, the Bahamas Financial Services Board presented to the Bahamas Government an E-Commerce Position Paper, detailing a strategy for The Bahamas to become a global leader as an electronic commerce and communications hub, including the development of enabling legislation. It also served on the Ministry of Finance's National Steering Committee on E-Commerce, which led to the drafting of an action plan submitted to the Cabinet.

The BFSB Working Group on E-Commerce now has been presented with the drafts for proposed legislation, as follows:

  • Computer Misuse Act, 2000
  • Electronic Communications Act, 2000
  • Data Protection (Privacy of Information) Act 2000

The Working Group will be submitting industry input to the Ministry of Finance once review of the draft legislation is completed.
