Digital Services Act: Summary report of the public consultation on the DSA Transparency Database

The public consultation on the DSA Transparency Database ran from 20 June to 18 July 2023.

Article 24(5) of the DSA establishes that the Commission must set up and maintain a database of statements from online platforms concerning reasons for removal of information and other content moderation decisions (The DSA Transparency Database). The public consultation gathered information on how to implement this obligation.

The summary report contains input from 48 different stakeholders, 16 of which have obligations under the DSA. It takes stock of the contributions to the public consultation, which covered feedback on what information should be collected, as well as methods for submitting statements and accessing the database. 

The main findings of the consultation include feedback on the database’s scope and structure, the submission procedures, their volume and timelines, as well as feedback on data options.
