On 11 May 2022, the Commission adopted a proposal for a Regulation laying down rules to prevent and combat child sexual abuse online, aiming at establish a permanent legal framework in the field.

The proposal was accompanied by an impact assessment (IA). In view of persisting concerns over the potential impacts of the proposal on fundamental rights and concerns raised by the Regulatory Scrutiny Board in regard to the Commission's impact assessment, the LIBE Committee requested the EPRS to undertake a complementary impact assessment in regard to certain specific questions in order to critically review and complement the analysis, data and information contained in the said IA. External experts presented the outcomes of this complementary IA at the LIBE meeting of 13 April.
