Understanding & Meeting DSA Compliance Requirements

Starting in 2024, online platforms operating in the EU will be obligated to establish both ad-hoc and ongoing Trust & Safety mechanisms to comply with the DSA. Failure to comply risks heavy fines and possible operational barriers. ActiveFence can help platforms meet their DSA compliance needs.

DSA requirements for
online platforms

The Digital Services Act aims to create a single, frictionless set of rules for digital service providers to operate in when conducting business in each of the EUʼs 27 member states.

Pushing platforms to be more aware of Trust & Safety throughout the product lifecycle, the DSA emphasizes three areas of safety: platform development and maintenance, transparency and accountability, and risk mitigation.

compliance for online platforms

Automated user flagging mechanisms

Leverage our Flagging API and ready-to-use workflows to create a dedicated moderation queue for flagged content. With the intuitive ActiveOS UI and seamless integration options for third-party tools, Trust & Safety teams can automatically handle flagged items based on predetermined thresholds and trigger notifications for flagging users. This ensures prompt responses and effective communication for flagged items, in alignment with the requirements of the DSA.

Appeals and notice processes

Utilize ActiveOS code-less workflows to support a formal procedure for providing reasons when taking actions such as content takedowns, account suspensions, or other moderation actions on the platform, and for individuals to appeal against them. With ActiveScore, an AI-driven detection tool, we provide context whether to accept or deny the appeal and, in any case, provide a suggested message to reflect the moderation decision.

Beyond DSA: navigating evolving global legislation

The regulatory landscape is constantly evolving with the introduction of various legislations, including both new and existing ones such as the Online Safety Act (2021), the Online Safety Bill (Pending), TERREG, NetzDG, Information Technology Rules 2021, and more. Stay updated on these developments and explore how ActiveFence can assist in ensuring compliance with these regulations.
