European Commission launches consultation to seek views on Digital Services Act package
The European Commission launched a public consultation on the Digital Services Act, a landmark package announced by President von der Leyen in her political guidelines and in the Commission's Communication “Shaping Europe's Digital Future” of 19 February. The consultation seeks to gather views, evidence and data from people, businesses, online platforms, academics, civil society, and all interested parties to help us shape the future rulebook for digital services. 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.
