  • What is the Digital Services Act?
    The Digital Services Act (DSA) is legislation by the European Commission aimed at regulating a variety of digital services within the European Union (EU). The DSA is part of a broader package of EU regulations called the Digital Services Act Package, which also includes the Digital Markets Act (DMA). These acts seek to address various challenges associated with the digital economy, such as the dominance of large online platforms, online misinformation, and harmful content. Really at it's heart, the DSA establishes a regulatory framework for the liability of online platforms for the content they host and enforces obligations for platforms to take measures to address illegal content, such as hate speech, terrorist content, and counterfeit goods. The act emphasizes transparency in content moderation processes and provides mechanisms for user appeals in case of content removal or account suspension. Every online platform is required to establish a direct and efficient single point of contact for users to communicate electronically. You can read more about the DSA here.
  • How do I know if my company is subject to the Digital Services Act?
    There are a couple of key questions to ask which are: 1. Does my platform host any user-generated content such as images, text, video, or audio? 2. Does my platform allow for users to interact and share messages or other types of content? 3. Do I have any users in the Euopean Union? If you answered yes to either 1 or 2 and yes to 3, you are likely subject to the DSA. From there, the DSA introduces a classification system to categorize digital “intermediary services” based on their size and impact. Online platforms are divided into three categories: (a) Very Large Online Platforms or Search Engines (VLOPs; VLOSEs), (b) Online platforms (LPs), (c) Intermediary services, and (d) Web hosting services. The obligations and requirements for each category differ based on their size and role in the digital ecosystem which you can read about here.
  • What are the risks of non-compliance with the Digital Services Act?
    Non-compliance could be a major issue and warrants a real risk evaluation done by your legal and operations teams. The DSA sets maximum statutory caps which are up to 6% of your company's global revenue. And the maximum fine for knowingly or negligently submitting incorrect, incomplete or misleading information in response to an information request is up to 1% of your global revenue.
  • What is required for to be compliant with the Digital Services Act?
    Quite a lot! Your platform will need to invest in technology, policy, and operations tools and processes to effectively handle DSA compliance. This article covers each of those areas to help you understand how to achieve and maintain compliance with the DSA.
  • How does TrustLab’s compliance software work?
    TrustLab's Compliance platform is purpose-built for the Digital Services Act, UK Online Safety bill, and more. Simply plug TrustLab into your existing complaint form and send us those issues via API or email. We will use our proprietary AI models to understand the complaint and classify it into the mandated areas of content illegality, and store all of the data related to the complaint to leverage in the required Transparency Reporting. TrustLab will handle all the user communications between content creators and flaggers via Statement of Reasons reports as well as appeals. We then will pass back a recommendation to you to take action, such as removing the content. If our AI model determines a piece of content should receive a review from a human, our team of experts will review it manually or we can send it back to your team for manual review. Using our technology, we will seamlessly receive, triage, classify, and report on any content on your platform that may violate the DSA.
