The CERRE Report makes recommendations to make the Digital Markets Act, recently proposed by the European Commission to regulate large digital platforms, more resilent and effective. To do so, the report, recommends (1) more clarity on the objectives of the DMA, specifically the meaning of contestability and fairness: (2) focus scope to minimise the risks of over and under inclusiveness; (3) a better balance between the ‘administrability’ and flexibility of the DMA; (4) more room and mechanisms within the DMA for learning-by-doing in order to optimise regulation of digital markets in the long run and (5) a role for national authorities in supporting the Commission through their knowledge of local conditions, proximity to businesses and expertise in designing remedies.
