EU Parliament’s Committee Endorses Agreement on Digital Services Act

 |  June 16, 2022

The EU Parliament’s Internal Market Committee endorsed Thursday the provisionally reached agreement with EU governments on the DSA with 36 votes in favor, five against and one abstention. 

The DSA, together with its sister proposal, the Digital Markets Act (DMA), sets landmark standards for a safer and more open digital space for users and a level playing field for companies. Very large online platforms and search engines (with 45 million users or more) will have to comply with stricter obligations to protect users from illegal content and goods.
