At the end of 2006 an amendment was passed into the UK Companies Act that makes it a requirement for companies to display regulatory information about their company on websites and email footers.
From 1st January 2007, a company must show the following information on all company websites and all company emails:
On websites, it doesn't need to be on every page, as some observers initially thought. An appropriate place would be an 'About Us', a 'Contact' page or perhaps a 'Legal terms' page.
The information should be included in every email. An appropriate place would be at the foot. Most email packages provide a facility for a 'signature' or 'template' that could be used for this.
Failure to comply is a breach of the law and you would be opening your company up to a potential fine.comments powered by Disqus
