A new DSA for a Fair Digital Europe
FairDigitalEurope is an initiative that represents a multinational network of cities, organisations, civil society and other entities that aims to connect as many interested partners as possible across Europe to help developing a fair model for Europe’s digital future.
It provides a platform to exchange knowledge, ideas and practices between interested parties and partners in preparation for the Digital Services Act. Everyone is cordially invited to partake and share one’s ideas and views.
A common approach presents an ideal opportunity to put forward interests and positions to those actively participating in the legislative procedure.
FairDigitalEurope also provides a Municipal Digital Services Act Toolbox, which contains a first approach of possible solutions to the problems listed below and is intended to be shared for informational purposes as well.
This and other documents can be accessed in the download section of this webpage, which is being continually updated.
What is the DSA?
The European Commission is preparing a proposal for a Digital Services Act by the end of 2020. This act will be the new basis for activities of platforms, cloud services or mixed digital services within the European Union and its single market. Many of such activities were formerly regulated in the E-Commerce Directive (2000/31/EC), which came into effect at the beginning of this millenium.
What are the Problems?
This section is dedicated to highlight some of the issues, that arise with the outdated
E-Commerce Directive and need to be taken into consideration with the future Digital Services Act.
There is no formal membership or fee for taking part in this endeavour. You can express your interest in sending us (info[at]fairdigitaleurope.eu) a mail with your official logo (*.png) and the contact details of your unit (name, address, person in charge, phone number, e-mail) which deals with issues concerning digital or platform economy in your city or region. We also provide a push notification service for updates to the downloads section.
