Sublaws under Royal Decree on Thailand Digital Platform Service 泰國數位平台服務皇家法令的子法

On 20 July 2023, Thailand’s Electronic Transactions Development Agency (ETDA) held a briefing session announcement that there will be a draft of sublaws under the Royal Decree on Digital Platform Services.[1] The sublaws are expected to be announced this month.


Following are key changes and new requirement listed in the drafted sublaws:


Ø The ETDA has drafted guidelines on the ways for identifying active users to provide digital platform service operators a better understanding of the calculation methods.


Ø The definition of “users” for calculating annual monthly active users (AMAUs) has been reduced in scope to cover only users in Thailand.


Ø E-marketplace digital platform services suspending or terminating operations for specific users must notify the affected users and to provide a period for them to challenge the suspension or termination.


Ø Digital platform service operators cannot use the requirements to recognize their active users as a legal basis for processing users’ personal data, especially for profiling and tracking activities.


Ø The sublaws on announcement of terms and conditions (T&Cs) and changes to T&Cs will be effective on January 3, 2024 once it is issued, while the other sublaws will take effect immediately (i.e., August 21, 2023). This means that the ETDA admitted the private sector’s feedback that the requirements on T&Cs will take more time for operators to comply with.

關於條款和條件(T&Cs)公告以及條款和條件變更的子法將於發布後於2024年1月3日生效,其他子法將立即生效(即2023年8月21日)。這意味著 ETDA 承認私營部門的反饋意見,即運營商需要更多時間才能遵守條款和條件的要求。

Ø The requirements for changing T&Cs have been adjusted. Under the current draft, the required advance notification period can be exempted if a change in the T&Cs is for the purpose of, for example, rolling out new products or services and improving the platform.


Ø Required submissions under the Royal Decree for Digital Platform Services and its sublaws will be made through the ETDA’s online portal.

根據《數位平台服務皇家法令》及其子法所需提交的資料將通過 ETDA 的線上網站進行。

For certain types of digital platform services, the ETDA has the authority to announce which platforms will be designated as falling within the scope of the royal decree’s requirements.

對於某些類型的數位平台服務,ETDA 有權宣布哪些平台將被指定為屬於皇家法令要求的範圍。
