28th March 2023

IIC Brussels Chapter Event – 360° on the Proposed Regulation on Prevention & Combating Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) – in person

Chapter event

Date: Tuesday 28 March
Time: 12:00 – 14:00 (CEST)
Duration: 2 hours

Kindly hosted by McDermott Will & Emery

The Proposed Regulation proposes obligations on relevant information society services providers to minimise the risk that their services are misused for online child sexual abuse; on providers of hosting / interpersonal communication services to detect and report online child sexual abuse; as well an obligation on hosting services providers to remove or disable access to CSAM from their services.  The Proposed Regulation aims to improve detection, investigation and prosecution of CSAM-related offences.  It also foresees the establishment of a new independent EU Centre on Child Sexual Abuse to support and facilitate the implementation efforts, gather and share expertise, and facilitate cooperation between relevant public and private parties.

We will discuss developments and next steps towards the adoption of the Proposed Regulation, including the most recent positions of the co-legislators (the European Parliament and the Council).  The session will also discuss key considerations regarding the interplay with the ePrivacy Directive, proportionality and effectiveness of detection orders, involvement of the AI (including with regards to the detection of the so-called ‘grooming’), and selected questions relating to the practical implementation, such as the age verification, encryption standards, as well as the overall scope of the Proposed Regulation (including challenges related to voice messaging and live communications).


Information about how to register will be available soon.
