#AtlanticDebrief – How will the OSA be implemented? | A Debrief from Melanie Dawes
An #AtlanticDebrief with Ofcom Chief Executive Dame Melanie Dawes covering the Online Safety Act and regulatory guidance on illegal harms. In partnership with the Atlantic Council’s Europe Center.
The United Kingdom’s landmark Online Safety Act (OSA)—imposing obligations on user-to-user online services and search engines—received royal assent last month. What is the OSA designed to achieve? What are the types of companies in scope and how does the UK communications regulator, Ofcom, plan to ensure that platforms and search engines comply? How will Ofcom address issues of encryption, age assurance and right to privacy? And how will Ofcom work with other regulators in the UK and around the globe around these common issues?
On this episode of #AtlanticDebrief—in partnership with the Atlantic Council’s Europe Center— Europe Center nonresident senior fellow Susan Ness sits down with Ofcom Chief Executive Dame Melanie Dawes to discuss Ofcom’s regulatory guidance on illegal harms.
