Bermuda bids to become beachhead for e-business; island's drive to serve as a hub for e-commerce is manifest in its Electronic Transactions Act
Bermuda's Electronic Transactions Act 1999(ETA) establishes legal principles for the conduct of electronic commerce and the processing of electronic transactions and shows the island's aim to become a hub for such commerce. The ETA, which borrows from different sources including the UN Commission on International Trade Law's Model Law on Electronic Commerce, gives a minister of telecommunications and electronic commerce authority to approve a code of conduct to be drawn up by the industry itself.
