[INFOGRAPHIC] Cullen cheat sheet on the Digital Services Act 19 July 22 Laura Sboarina

On 5 July 2022, the European Parliament approved the political agreement reached by the co-legislators on the Digital Services Act (DSA). The Council is expected to formally approve the text in September.

Cullen International's cheat sheet provides an overview of the different tiers of obligations for online services that are available to users in the European Union to counter the dissemination of illegal content and (for very large online platforms and very large search engines) to deal with societal harms.

The DSA will apply 15 months after it enters into force (i.e. 20 days after it is published in the official journal) or on 1 January 2024, whichever is later.

The rules for the very large online platforms (VLOPs) and search engines (VLOSEs) could however apply earlier.
