This law is applicable to all persons who practice a trade with the purpose for profit or not-for profit, which include the trade of goods or other services or real rights on immovable properties for consumers within the Kingdom of Cambodia, unless otherwise provided.

The Internet of Things (IoT) becomes a global infrastructure for the information society which enables advanced services by interconnecting physical and virtual things based on existing and evolving interoperable information and communication technologies (ICT).
