EU negotiators have reached a provisional agreement on the Digital Services Act (DSA), which will set the standards for a safe and competitive digital environment.
The DSA will apply to all online intermediaries providing services across the single market to make sure that what is illegal offline is also illegal online. In particular, it will tackle the spread of illegal content online and safeguard users' rights while unfolding new opportunities to provide digital services in Europe.
Together with the Digital Markets Act (DMA), the DSA will ensure that European legislation keeps up with the evolution of the digital space.
The proposal needs to be finalised and approved by the Council and the European Parliament before entering into force.
