In response to the recent public hearings for the draft Royal Decree on regulating digital platforms, the Electronic Transactions Development Agency (ETDA) has seen fit to make some amendments. The key points concern: providing a clearer definition of digital platform service; details of digital platform services that are exempt from this regulation; the extent of the ETDA's authority and what type of information should be disclosed before or during use of a digital service platform; and the introduction of a certification mark. There are still some issues that businesses will likely need to clarify with the ETDA, such as those relating to enforcement, but nevertheless, the draft has been approved by the ETDA and will be sent to the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society for further consideration and other stages of the legislative process.
