Digital platforms regulation

Council for Media Services is the Slovak national regulatory authority instituted by Act no. 264/2022 of the Slovak Republic (The Media Services Act - MSA). The Council is responsible for media oversight and enforcement of regulatory frameworks concerning retransmission, broadcasting, provision of on-demand audiovisual media services, and online platforms. As part of the Council's mission to exercise state regulation within the digital domain, the regulator tackles harmful and potentially illegal content and cooperates with online platforms in the effective, proportionate, and non-discriminatory application of their community rules, norms, and standards.  Besides, Council for Media Services has the competency to assess the appropriateness of public protection measures adopted by the platforms within the Slovak market.

The Council is an active member of well-renowned international platforms for regulatory authorities, such as ERGA (European Regulators Group for Audiovisual Media Services) and EPRA (European Platform of Regulatory Authorities), as well as international initiatives tackling terrorism and other types of illegal content online, such as the Christchurch call and GIFCT (Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism). Considering the upcoming Digital Services Act, Council for Media Services is a leading member of an informal network of proto-Digital Services coordinators, where it leads an informal working group on systemic risks.
