On 4 October 2022, the EU Council of Ministers adopted the Digital Services Act which will enter into force within 15 months, i.e. by 1 January 2024. The Digital Services Act (DSA) has been published in the Official Journal of the European Union. The DSA amends the eCommerce Directive 2000/31/EC and introduces new requirements for online intermediary services including online marketplaces, internet service providers, cloud providers, search engines, social networks, and content-sharing platforms.

It establishes standards for accountability across online platforms and enhances user protection online. The Digital Services Act aims to create a transparent and safe online space to safeguard users against illegal content, online discrimination, and cyber assault. The DSA is expected to bring forward new consumer protection rules in the online environment and provide opportunities for digital businesses.

Under the DSA, online platforms will be required to promptly delete illegal content, including counterfeit and dangerous goods. They must have mechanisms in place allowing users to flag illegal online content. Under the "know your business customer" principle, online marketplaces may be compelled to track their traders, and any dark patterns intended to influence users' online behavior are severely forbidden. Data intermediaries that are used by more than 10 percent of EU consumers or large online platforms with more than 45 million monthly active users have additional requirements.
