From 02 May 2023, organizations acting as access controllers for businesses or end-users established or located in the European Union and providing essential platform services such as online search engines, app stores, marketplaces or cloud computing services shall align their activities with the provisions of Regulation (EU) 2022/1925 (Digital Markets Act). The enterprises mentioned above are also those that have a major impact on the internal market by providing a core platform service that is an important gateway to reach the end user or has a long-established business application.

Thresholds have been set under Article 3(2) of Regulation (EU) 2022/1925, at which undertakings are obliged to notify the European Commission of their essential platform services to be performed by 02. 07. 2023 inclusive.

Access control undertakings also need to apply the obligations of Articles 5, 6, and 7 as well as those of Articles 13, 14, and 15 of Regulation (EU) 2022/1925 (Digital Markets Act).

The aim of the regulation is to establish rules that contribute to the proper functioning of the internal market, ensuring the accessibility and fairness of markets in the digital sector for business users and end users. This will be done by providing regulatory protection against unfair practices by these businesses in the EU.
