Call for views in response to the European Commission’s public consultation on the Digital Services Act

The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation is seeking views from stakeholders on Digital Services Act proposals.

On 2 June 2020 the European Commission launched a public consultation on the Digital Services Act.

The consultation covers the two work strands which aim to establish:

  1. A set of rules would relate to the fundamentals of the e-commerce directive, in particular the freedom to provide digital services across the EU single market in accordance with the rules of the place of establishment and a broad limitation of liability for content created by users, see Inception Impact Assessments on e-Commerce aspects; and
  2. A level playing field in European digital markets where currently a few large online platforms act as gatekeepers, see Inception Impact Assessment on ex-ante tools

The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation is seeking views from stakeholders on Digital Services Act proposals. Submissions, marked “Public Consultation on the Digital Services Act”, can be emailed to dsaconsultation@dbei.gov.ie.

The deadline for submissions is close of business on Friday, 24 July 2020.

The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation is also seeking views from stakeholders on European Commission proposals to explore the need for a new competition tool that would address structural competition problems in a timely and effective manner. More information on this consultation is available on European Commission Proposal: New Competition Tool.
