EXPRA joined 29 business, consumer and civil society organisations in a joint statement regarding the Digital Services Act (DSA) as a vehicle to counter online free-riding

The joint statement calls on the policy makers for effective and unambiguous rules in order to tackle illegal activities and rogue traders on online platforms that facilitate initiation of transactions between traders and consumers and that this should be done via a strong liability regime and firm obligations.

We believe that the DSA is the right instrument and should complement other EU laws as it can address situations where environment, sustainability, energy efficiency, counterfeiting or consumer rights laws are ignored and define conditions for liability and limits what can be regulated under other EU laws.
