Digital factsheets #2: the upcoming digital files and their place in the existing DSM framework

The new edition (Q2 2022) of my digital factsheets incorporates the Chips Act, Data Act and EHDS. It also takes into account the political agreement on the DSA and DMA, while adding several new legal initiatives by the European Commission in the upcoming months. It is complemented with a new overview of EU laws and enforcement mechanism in the digital sector.

The digital factsheets are quarterly updated and have two parts:

  1. An overview of the (IMHO) most important digital files that Brussel's tech bubble talks about as well as the future plans of the European Commission (all from an European Parliament perspective).

  2. Two tables: one on EU's digital laws and one on digital governance mechanism. From a Better Regulation point of view, the tables indicate that - at least in some areas - there is a risk of legal & enforcement overlaps. Many people in Member States, Brussels and even within the EU Institutions have lost track of "what is out there" and how it is "interconnected". Some might find this topic 'boring' and - true - it rarely creates flashy headlines ... nevertheless, better regulation should be at the center stage of digital policymaking. The EU will only be fit for the digital age, if it has a coherent and efficient legal & governance framework in place.

All data is based on official EU documents, was provided by the administration of the European Parliament or is from talks with the European Commission. You can download the digital factsheets below:
