In brief

After being postponed twice, the European Commission (Commission) published its draft Digital Markets Act (DMA) on 15th December 2020, in revised form — the EU’s Regulatory Scrutiny Board having objected to earlier iterations. The DMA takes the form of a regulation as the Commission seeks to ensure maximum alignment among Member States. The proposed “Digital Services Act” (DSA ) was published on the same day.
