Newsalert - The new AGCom competences for the enforcement of the European Regulation "Platform to Business"
Law no. 178 of December 30, 2020 (Legge di Bilancio 2021) granted new powers to the Italian Communications Authority (AG
Com) for the enforcement of Regulation (EU) 2019/1150, which established new obligations for online intermediaries/search engines. At the same time, the legislator extended to these entities the obligation to enrol with the Register of Communication Operators (ROC) kept by AGCom and to contribute to the financing of the Authority itself, if these entities offer services in Italy, even if they are not established in the national territory.
