Cullen International organised a briefing on the European Commission proposed regulation on "promoting fairness and transparency for business users of online intermediation services" on 16 May 2018.
Werner Stengg, Head of Unit E-commerce and Platforms, DG Connect, presented the proposal and answered questions from participants.
The proposed regulation was published by the European Commission on 26 April 2018 and is the first EU legal instrument aimed at online market places. Rather than prohibiting particular practices by these platforms, the draft regulation mainly obliges them to introduce, in their general terms and conditions, transparency requirements in relation to their business users on some of the main business practices (Flash and Tracker).
