ICC virtual session on the provisions of the Digital Services Act
2021-01-21 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM CET
The Proposal for a Regulation on a Single Market of Digital Sevices, as part of the European Digital Strategy put forward in Shaping Europe’s Digital Future, will change the rules for tackling illegal and potentially harmful content online and update the liability regime of digital service providers. The provisions of the proposed Regulation have wide ranging implications for all businesses involved in online activities in the Single Market and the Digital Services Act is relevant not only to all digital service providers in the EU but also to their business users and customers. For additional background, please see the Digital Services Act Scene Setter and the DSA Presentation by the EU Commission.
Building on the eCommerce Directive (2000), the proposal introduces new obligations for providers of intermediary services and entrusts regulators with new oversight and enforcement prerogatives, thereby creating new rights and obligations for all businesses that participate in the Digital Single Market.
The European Commission is currently open for feedback on the proposal until 3 March. All feedback received will be summarised by the European Commission and presented to the European Parliament and Council with the aim of feeding into the legislative debate.
