General Scheme of the Digital Services Bill 2023


March 2023

The EU Regulation known as the Digital Services Act (Regulation (EU) 2022/2065) came into force in EU law on 16 November 2022 and will fully apply in member states from 17 February 2024.
While many of the obligations, such as the requirements on providers of online intermediary services will apply directly, it is necessary to give effect to some of the Digital Services Act’s provisions with national legislative measures. In particular, Ireland is obliged to designate and empower a competent authority, known as the Digital Services Coordinator, to supervise and implement the Digital Services Act.
