The European Parliament and the Council of the EU have adopted the final text of the Digital Markets Act (DMA), which will introduce new rules for the digital economy.

The DMA will require online platforms acting as “gatekeepers” on digital markets to comply with wide-ranging obligations.

The official legal text of the DMA will be published in the EU’s Official Journal in autumn this year. It will enter into force 20 days after publication and become applicable six months later, most likely in March or April 2023. “Gatekeepers” will have a maximum of six months after being designated as such to comply with the new obligations.
