Gov.gr Now Empowers Citizens to Report Digital Platform Violations

Greek citizens can now easily report violations committed by digital platforms, thanks to a new feature on the “gov.gr” platform. This initiative specifically targets breaches of the Digital Services Act (DSA), a set of regulations enforced throughout the European Union.

Simplified Complaint Process:

Citizens who encounter potential DSA violations can choose between two convenient reporting methods:

  1. Gov.gr Platform: File a complaint directly through the dedicated section on the gov.gr website.
  2. EETT Online Form: Access the Hellenic Telecommunications and Post Commission (EETT) website and complete the designated online complaint form.

Both options require citizens to identify the intermediary service provider and provide detailed information supporting the alleged violation.

Upon submission, citizens receive confirmation that their complaint has been received. EETT then evaluates the complaint and decides whether to handle the case internally or forward it to the relevant authority.

This new system aims to curb the spread of illegal content and disinformation online while protecting the fundamental rights of all citizens.

Platforms Subject to DSA:

The European Commission has identified 23 major platforms and search engines subject to the DSA, including: Alibaba Ali Express, Amazon Store, Apple App Store, Pornhub, Booking.com, Google Search, Google Play, Google Maps, Google Shopping, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Snapchat, Stripchat, TikTok, X (formerly Twitter), XVideos, Wikipedia, Zalando, Bing, and Shein.
