DIGITALEUROPE and 17 national associations publish joint letter on priorities for the Digital Markets Act

DIGITALEUROPE is pleased by the ongoing discussion on the DMA but sees room for refinement. Along with 17 of our national association members, we have published a joint letter outlining our key priorities.

Our organisations represent a cross-section of the entire European digital ecosystem, from start-ups to some of the largest players. Digital platforms have driven significant innovation in Europe and empowered businesses and consumers alike. At the same time, new and fast-moving markets can give rise to challenges, some of which will require intervention. We welcome the important discussion about improving contestability and fairness and hope that the Digital Markets Act can provide workable solutions for real challenges.

As the Member States and European Parliament finalise their positions and begin trilogues, we reiterate three key priorities to ensure a successful and effective DMA:

  1. Legal certainty
  2. Effective and proportionate obligations based on regulatory dialogue
  3. Procedural safeguards
