New obligations for B2B2C platforms: European Regulation on promoting fairness and transparency

The Official Journal of the European Union has published the new Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on promoting fairness and transparency for business users of online intermediation services.

The Regulation, which will enter into force 20 days after its publication, will apply directly in all Member States 12 months after it is published in the Official Journal of the European Union. As a regulation, it does not need to be transposed into national law. The 12-month period between the Regulation’s entry into force and its initial application reflects how much online-intermediation service providers and search engines will have to adapt to comply with the Regulation.
