The ECR Group welcomes the adoption of three reports on the Digital Services Act

The ECR Group appreciates the evidence based approach for new rules on online platforms and other digital services providers that have been adopted by the European Parliament. The recommendations for a new framework for digital services to be published by the Commission focuses on removal of illegal content online, includes an ex-ante regulation for systemic platforms acting as 'gatekeepers' and aim for a better protection of EU consumers purchasing products from both EU based and non-EU based online marketplaces.

Speaking after the vote, MEP Eugen Jurzyca, ECR shadow rapporteur for the Digital services act report on Improving the functioning of the Single Market, said: “I am glad we are sending a clear message to the Commission. Analysis based on relevant data, including best practices must be a strong basis for each proposal in the Digital Service Act.”

MEP Angel Dzhambazki, ECR shadow rapporteur working on the Digital services act report on adapting commercial and civil law rules for commercial entities operating online, added: “Not only is it crucial for online shoppers to be sufficiently informed about product availability and safety details, but that their protection is fully assured in the digital marketplace. It is vital to clarify the difference between illegal and harmful content online. We must do everything we can to improve digital literacy overall.”

MEP Patryk Jaki, ECR shadow rapporteur for the report on fundamental rights issues related to digital services, concluded: “It’s worth introducing greater accountability and transparency with regard to the main beneficiaries of the online world. At the same time, I am opposed to mandatory internet filtering systems. New regulations must not threaten freedom within the network.”

The European Parliament prepared the three legislative resolutions to identify its priorities for digital transformation as the Commission announced to publish a new framework for digital services and online platforms in December 2020. The current legal framework for digital services and e-Commerce has been in force and unchanged since the year 2000.
