Evaluating the Implementation of the EU Code of Practice on Disinformation in Romania

The VLOPs operating in Romania have voluntarily agreed to follow the guidelines formulated by the Code of Practice, however, they haven't always taken these measures seriously in their compliance reports. Furthermore, since there are no specific legal penalties for non-compliance, the VLOPs are still slow in (or sometimes even reluctant to) making the best efforts to ensure a responsible and trustworthy digital environment in Romania. 

In Romania, the National Authority for Management and Regulation in Communications (ANCOM) was recently designated as the Digital Services Coordinator, responsible for overseeing and ensuring compliance with the Digital Services Act (DSA). ANCOM has also become part of the European Board for Digital Services, collaborating with other national coordinators, conducting joint investigations, issuing opinions and recommendations, and contributing to developing and implementing guidelines and reports related to the DSA.
