Guidance / Code of practice on disinformation

EESC opinion: Guidance / Code of practice on disinformation


The COVID-19 crisis has starkly illustrated the threats and challenges disinformation  poses to our societies. To step up the fight against disinformation, the Digital Services Act7 (DSA) proposed by the Commission sets out a co-regulatory framework through Codes of Conduct for addressing systemic risks linked to disinformation. This Guidance sets out the Commission’s views on how platforms and other relevant stakeholders should step up their measures to address gaps and shortcomings in the Code and create a more transparent, safe and trustworthy online environment.
