New benchmark on designated Digital Service Coordinators to enforce rules of the Digital Services Act 06 March 23 Michele Ledger

Cullen International is tracking the designation by the member states of the Digital Service Coordinators (DSCs) under the Digital Services Act (DSA). The benchmark will also show the financial, technical and human resources that will be allocated to the DSCs, the decision-making process as well as which other authorities will be designated to supervise the application the DSA in specific sectors or areas.

By 17 February 2024, the member states will need to communicate the names of their DSCs to the European Commission.

So far, out of the 14 member states covered, three member states have announced or decided who their DSCs will be:

  • in Hungary, it will be the telecoms and media regulator, NMHH; 
  • in Ireland, the new media regulator, the Media Commission will be appointed; 
  • in the Netherlands, it will be the Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM).

In four other countries, there is heightened speculation on who the DSC will be.
