The DMA has entered into force on 1 November 2022 and will start to apply as of 2 May 2023. To prepare for the enforcement of the DMA, the Commission is engaging proactively with interested parties (including potential gatekeepers, business users, end users of platform services and civil society representatives) to ensure effective and timely compliance of designated gatekeepers with the new rules. In this context, a first workshop on self-preferencing was organised on 5 December 2022.
