On the 15th of December 2020, the European Commission published an initial proposal for a Regulation entitled the “Digital Services Act”. COFACE Families Europe has been following the development of this piece of legislation from the start, and responded to the initial consultation launched by the Commission
As it stands, the current Digital Services Act proposal includes some notable progress, especially in the areas of advertising and online safety, but it also fails at addressing many issues such as pushing for easier data portability or empowering users of digital services platforms.
This short assessment first assessed to what extend COFACE proposals are reflected in the DSA, and secondly highlights articles which are important from a civil society perspective.
