One more week to respond to Digital Services Act consultation

The public consultation on the EU Digital Services Act package is open until 8 September.

Launching the consultation earlier this year, the European Commission said:

The Commission has announced a Digital Services Act package. The Commission is initiating an open public consultation as part of its evidence-gathering exercise, in order to identify issues that may require intervention at the EU level. This consultation covers in addition a series of topics related to the environment of digital services and online platforms, which will be further analysed in view of possible upcoming initiatives should the issues identified require a regulatory intervention.

More information is available here and the questionnaire can be accessed here.

The questionnaire is broad in scope and is designed to gather evidence from a side range of stakeholders. It has six modules:

  1. How to effectively keep users safer online?
  2. Reviewing the liability regime of digital services acting as intermediaries?
  3. What issues derive from the gatekeeper power of digital platforms?
  4. Other emerging issues and opportunities, including online advertising and smart contracts
  5. How to address challenges around the situation of self-employed individuals offering services through online platforms?
  6. What governance for reinforcing the Single Market for digital services?

MARQUES encourages any readers who are engaged in this area to consider responding to the questionnaire by the deadline.
