VLOPs (very large online platforms)

The Digital Services Act (DSA) introduces the concept of "very large online platforms" (VLOPs) and "very large online search engines" (VLOSEs), identifying them as digital platforms or search engines that have more than 45 million monthly active users within the European Union. When an online service crosses this significant user threshold, it is officially recognized as a VLOP or VLOSE by the European Commission, subjecting it to a higher level of regulatory scrutiny and obligations aimed at ensuring safer and more transparent online environments.
