EUTA Position on the Digital Services Act
Today, the European Tech Alliance (EUTA) has published its Position on the Future eCommerce Framework (‘Digital Services Act’), which can be found below.
The EUTA welcomes the opportunity to clarify the e-Commerce Directive with a view to promoting the growth of digital services throughout Europe, whilst protecting consumers, and preventing fragmentation at the national level.
It is vital that new rules reflect the diversity of digital services today rather than a handful of digital business models or sectors, and create a level playing field for companies to grow and compete with global actors.
As European operators of digital services and online platforms, EUTA members are committed to playing their part in this future framework. This paper sets out EUTA members’ preliminary recommendations for clarifying the legal framework and ensuring a safe and thriving Internet in Europe.
