EDAA Fact Sheet – Digital Services Act (DSA)
page banner for fact sheet copy

The DSA, which amends the e-Commerce Directive (2000/31/EC) will govern the responsibilities of digital platforms. Following the example set by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), it will also apply to platforms established outside the EU in case they target European consumers.

Member States, businesses, associations and civil society might have different priorities on the file, but one thing is clear – transparency of advertising and codes of conduct have a central role in the DSA and EDAA is ideally positioned as ready to contribute to this debate with tools, expertise, and know-how.

The document you can download here and below focuses on the first Regulation, the DSA. A separate document will later address the second Regulation, the DMA. What the fact sheet aims is to provide a clearer view of the likely impact of the regulation on industry, business, and users alike and list some of the tools at their disposal to help build a healthier, more sustainable, and thriving online ecosystem for all.
