Abstract/Citation: The purpose of the National Internet Gateway (NIG) Sub-Decree is to facilitate and manage internet connections to strengthen revenue collection, protect national security, to “preserve social order, culture, and national tradition” (article 1).

The NIG establishes a digital gateway to manage all internet traffic into and out of Cambodia. Provisions allow government-appointed NIG operators to block or disconnect any online connections (article 6), retain traffic data for a year and provide other network information as requested by authorities (article 14), and issue penalties for non-compliant telecommunications operators (article 16).
