We hosted our first Digital Content Regulation Seminar in our offices on Barrow Street on Tuesday 13 June.

At this seminar our speakers discussed the priorities for Coimisiún na Meán (Ireland’s new Media Commission) under its first annual Work Plan and the development and application of binding online safety codes (OSCs) under the Online Safety and Media Regulation Act 2022.

OSCs will apply to all video-sharing platform services established here, for which Coimisiún na Meán has pan-EU regulatory responsibility under the AVMS Directive. They will potentially apply to a wide range of services that directly or indirectly make available user generated content, such as social media, gaming, eCommerce, messaging, storage, search engines and internet access. They will govern a range of issues such as risk assessments, content moderation and delivery, terms of use, reporting, advertisements and complaints handling. This event will be of interest to in-house counsel with a role in these areas.


  • Niamh Hodnett, Ireland’s Online-Safety Commissioner, Coimisiún na Meán.
  • Ronan Lupton SC.
  • Michael Madden, Partner and Head of Digital Content Regulation, Mason Hayes & Curran.
