The application of EU law is based on different public enforcement models, the three mains ones being: a decentralised model where enforcement is carried out by the authorities of the Member State where the regulated firm is established (country of origin); a decentralised model where enforcement is undertaken by the authorities of the Member State where the regulated firm provides its services (country of destination) and; a centralised model where enforcement is the responsibility of an EU Institution.
To date, EU laws governing the digital sector were mostly enforced with the country-of-origin model, however the recent European Commission proposals for a Digital Services Act (DSA) and for a Digital Markets Act (DMA) favour a centralised model. Moreover, the same digital service may be covered by different legal instruments which have different enforcement models as well as coordination tools. So which is the best model for the different fields of EU law and how do you ensure a smooth coexistence of enforcement models when they apply to the same services?
Join us on 17 January 2022 at 12:30 to discuss CERRE’s latest report “Improving EU Institutional Design to Better Supervise Digital Platforms”. Authors Alexandre de Streel (CERRE Academic Director) and Giorgio Monti (CERRE Research Fellow) will present the pros and cons and the effectiveness of each enforcement model in order to determine which model is best adapted to specific circumstances. The presentation will be followed by a two-panel debate considering the role of national agencies and EU-level coordination featuring representative from industry, regulatory bodies, and the European Commission.
This webinar is free and open to all, please register here to receive the connection details.
If you can’t join us live then the webinar will be available to replay on the CERRE YouTube channel afterwards.
