premium rate services across the world

The International Audiotex Regulators Network (IARN) was set up in 1995 as a forum for exchanging information and good practice among its members. The members are all involved in the regulation of, or setting standards for, content and promotion of all premium rate services ('audiotex') in their own countries. Most of these bodies have been appointed to protect the interests of the general public. Their structure and methods of control vary from country to country, nevertheless independent consumer protection formally exists. It is not left to the industry alone to police itself.

Members of IARN meet twice a year. Dates and locations of future and past meetings are listed below:

November - UK
May - Ireland

November - Belgium
May - Austria

November - France
May - Finland/Sweden

November - Australia
May - Germany
