Digital Services Package adopted by the European Parliament

The European Parliament has adopted in first reading the Digital Services Act and the Digital Markets Act, which were proposed by the European Commission in December 2020. The new laws introduce greater accountability of online platforms for their activities.

The Digital Services Act aims to increase the protection of users’ rights online, while the Digital Markets Act will lay the foundation for the operation of fair and open online markets. Large online platforms offering online services are expected to be more accountable in terms of security and protection of personal data, and to comply with the rules of fair market competition.

The adoption of the Digital Services Package follows a political agreement reached between the European Parliament and EU member states in March and April of this year. It is an important step toward establishing a Single Digital Market with common rules for all EU citizens. The overarching goal is to create a safer and fairer digital space in Europe.

As a next step, the new laws must be formally adopted by the Council of the European Union and published in the Official Journal. This is expected to take place this fall.
