Implemented Digital Services Act containing new digital oversight board

On 17 February 2024, the Regulation of a Single Market for Digital Services (DSA) is implemented. The DSA aims to protect consumers against illicit content or services and protect their basic rights online. Under the DSA, a new European Board for Digital Services is established. The Board will support EU member states and their new national Digital Services Coordinators (DSc) in their investigations and analysis of "very large online platforms and search engines" reports and audits. Furthermore, the DSA creates a crisis response mechanism that the European Commission can activate on the recommendation of the National Digital Services Coordinators board. The mechanism allows the Commission to analyse the impact of "very large online platforms" and "very large online search engines" activities on a particular crisis and take proportionate measures to protect individuals' fundamental rights.
