BRUSSELS – Today, global tech trade association ITI issued the following statement from its Senior Vice President of Policy and Director General for Europe Guido Lobrano in reaction to the final agreement on the Digital Services Act (DSA):

“ITI fully supports the original objectives of the DSA to increase legal certainty, clarify roles, define responsibilities for actors in the online context, and to foster a level-playing field for businesses with proportionate rules on the removal of illegal content online. In order to preserve these goals, important principles like provisions on limited liability and the prohibition of a general monitoring obligation must be upheld. As policymakers continue to discuss the technical details of the final agreement, we continue to reiterate the importance of avoiding overly prescriptive requirements and to not overshadow the original objectives of the DSA with the addition of last-minute provisions.”
