Model Rules on Online Intermediary Platforms: Joint Project Team, Advisory Committee and MCC Meeting in Brussels (Belgium)


On 27 and 28 June 2019, the ELI Project Team on Draft Model Rules on Online Intermediary Platforms met with members of its Advisory and Members Consultative Committees in Brussels to discuss the current version of the draft Model Rules.

The aim of the meeting was to discuss the entire draft once again, focusing on still existing options and uncertainties. In light of the upcoming ELI Annual Conference in September, the Team made significant progress in restructuring and finalising the Rules.


In addition, a meeting with stakeholders of different interest groups took place in the afternoon of 27 June. In essence, the discussion proved that the Model Rules are fit for purpose. Key focal points included provisions on reputation systems and on the liability of the platform operator.


Following the meeting, the Redaction Committee will work on finalising the draft by taking into account the outcome of the discussions with the above Committees and with stakeholders.
