Event Details

There are fast moving developments of tech regulation in both the EU and the UK. The former with its proposed DMA regulation and the latter with BEIS' recent consultation on proposed legislation. Neither proposal has any specific provisions for private action. As the DMA Proposal and the UK proposed rules currently stand, private enforcement will be a reality. The proposed DMA Regulation will have direct effect. National courts will be competent to grant permanent or interim injunctions and order gatekeepers and firms with significant market status to take specific measures of a negative or positive nature. Such national decisions will inevitably result in a considerable degree of fragmentation within the EU and could jeopardise the efficient and effective enforcement of the proposed regulations.
