- Business SMS Code of Conduct
- Fraud Framework
- TEM Badge
Developed by the participants of MEF’s Future of Messaging Programme the Code aims to tackle the fraud types identified, defined and mapped in MEF’s Fraud Framework. It sets out best practice for all actors operating within the business SMS sector and is based on 10 principles offering detailed guidance on commercial, procedural and technical requirements as well as an emphasis on consumer protection.
It is overseen by an independent Compliance Committee which includes representatives from other trade associations and independent advisors. Further details on the Committee and Complaint procedure can be found here.
TEM is open to all companies who advocate industry best practice to tackle fraud in business SMS. Please see current Code signatories below.
All stakeholders active in the messaging ecosystem should consider their compliance to the Code. Click here for further details how to join TEM.
