The European Commission has run 2 parallel public consultations on a new competition tool (NCT) and a new legal framework for digital services the Digital Services Act (DSA) package which comprises a proposal for ex-ante regulation applicable to large platforms acting as gatekeepers and an update of the E-commerce directive including as regards responsibilities of online platforms.

This is the Competition and Market Authoritys response to both consultations with a view to contributing our views and sharing our experience as part of the ongoing global discussions on these topical matters.

Our response sets out our support for the European Commissions proposals in relation to both consultations. We believe it is desirable that there is strong coherence between different regimes internationally, particularly in relation to large platforms acting as gatekeepers.
