Parliament's negotiating position on the digital markets act

At a Glance 08-12-2021

In December 2020, the European Commission adopted a proposal for a digital markets act (DMA) designed to ensure a level playing-field in online markets and regulate the behaviour of digital platforms that act as gatekeepers. The Parliament is now preparing to debate and vote on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee (IMCO) report on the proposed act, during the December 2021 plenary session. The approved text will then become Parliament's mandate for negotiations with European Union (EU) governments.
