The Draft Law of the Digital Governance Ministry regarding the adoption of measures for the implementation of Regulation 2022/2065 of the European Union has already been submitted to public consultation.

The Digital Services Act is an EU initiative to introduce directly applicable rules in all member states on so-called intermediary services such as search engines, hosting providers, online marketplaces and social media networking. The aim is to ensure that the digital environment across the EU is safe, predictable and reliable. Among other things, the rules focus on preventing and addressing illegal and harmful online activities, combating disinformation and protecting minors.

The new rules raise the level of protection of users’ fundamental rights and limit their exposure to illegal online activities, while online platforms are required to provide greater transparency in their services, have procedures in place to handle content complaints and avoid certain practices.

The Draft Law comes to form the appropriate conditions for the full and effective implementation of the “Act” and to establish a legal framework to deal with phenomena such as misleading advertising or misinformation.

“We strengthen citizens’ rights”

“Many actions have moved into the digital age. We communicate, shop, entertain, using digital platforms and ‘consuming’ digital services. At the Ministry of Digital Governance, we are taking initiatives so that Greece participates in shaping the institutional framework for the internet and new technologies,” Digital Governance Minister Dimitris Papastergiou told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA-MPA) and explained:

“With the Digital Services Act, Europe is ensuring that the digital environment is secure and reliable. At the national level, with the implementation of the Act, citizens will be able to protect themselves immediately, when their rights are violated. In this direction, the National Telecommunications and Posts Commission undertakes, among other things, to supervise intermediate service providers, i.e. companies that ‘connect’ citizens with goods, services and information, by compiling a register for all those based in Greece.”
Papastergiou concluded: “We are establishing a modern legal framework, which places particular emphasis on dealing with phenomena, such as misinformation or the circulation of misleading advertisements and deep fake processed products, as well as strengthening citizens’ rights.”
