Synthesis

Florence Ninane started by presenting the Digital Markets Act (DMA) and commented on the topic for discussion: the interface between competition law and regulation. First, she explained that the DMA is a sector-specific instrument that aims at ensuring “fair and open digital markets” and at covering the gaps of competition law and intervening when competition law cannot act or can act only in an ineffective manner. It is an asymmetric instrument applicable only to designated ‘gatekeepers’: providers of Core Platform Services (CPS) which meet a three-limbed test based on their large size and impact on the EU internal market; their control of an important gateway for business users to reach end-users; and whether the control in question is entrenched and durable. The impact assessment indicates that the size threshold could result in the identification of 10 to 15 CPS providers.
