On 15 December 2020, the European Commission (EC) published a proposal for a Digital Markets Act (DMA), introducing a series of rules for platforms acting as “gatekeepers” in the digital sector. BEREC strongly supports the EC’s ambition to create contestable and fair markets in the digital sector for the benefit of European citizens and businesses and is putting forward a set of proposal to making this regulatory intervention swift, effective and future-proof. 

BEREC’s position is summarised in BEREC Opinion on the European Commission’s proposal for a Digital Markets Act.
