Chapter 180 of the Broadcasting Act (Internet Code of Practice)
The Internet Code of Practice requires sites with religious or political content or sites that discuss issues of this nature to register with the Broadcasting Authority. Failure to register is punishable by up to three years of imprisonment and a fine of up to USD 200,000. According to the Internet Code of Practice bloggers are providers of a 'programme' and fall under the same class licensing scheme, and are therefore required to ensure that their websites conform with the code of practice.

Sedition Act 1983
The class licence scheme for relevant providers and the Internet Code of Practice from 2005 are the basis for online content regulation in Brunei. The Code of Practice requires all Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Internet Content Providers (ICPs) licensed under the Broadcasting (Class Licence) Notification 2001 to use their best efforts to ensure that nothing is made available on the Internet which is against the public interest or national harmony or which offends good taste or decency. When a material is contrary to the Code of Practice, the Broadcasting Authority can require ISPs and ICPs to remove it or prohibit its broadcasting.

It is reported that various laws can be used to restrict the access of online content. These include the Censorship of Films and Public Entertainments Act 1963, the Undesirable Publications Act 1982, the Penal Code 1952 and the Sedition Act 1983.
