EU regulation on digital platforms

The aim of the EU internal market legislation is to promote the uniform operation and competitiveness of both traditional markets and the web-based business environment. However, the strong growth of the platform economy has resulted in the need to lay down specific rules for certain online platform services.

This will ensure a fair and predictable web-based business environment in the single market of the EU. The EU’s common rules on platform economy can also facilitate cross-border business in the single market and reduce the risk of fragmentation of the regulatory environment.
