The current European regulatory framework for digital services - such as online platforms, messaging and cloud services - dates back twenty years and needs to be updated.  However, in revising the rules, the Commission is keen to make sure that a balance is struck between the opportunity for businesses to innovate, protection of the freedom of expression and making sure the internet is safe.


It is therefore welcoming feedback from companies and organisations on these issues, to help it prepare a new Digital Services Act.  The consultation covers six themes and you can comment on any of all of these.  They include keeping users safe online, the gatekeeper power of digital platforms and the challenges for the self-employed when using online platforms.

This consultation closes: 8 September 2020
