IIC UK Chapter meeting: Online Safety Act – in person

Chapter event

Date: Tuesday 26 March 2024
Time: 17:00 – 20:00 GMT

Kindly hosted by

The event will bring together policy makers involved in the development of the Act, regulators involved in enforcing it and industry players that need to comply with it. Key issues to be covered include:

  • What are the practical issues with compliance for companies who will need to introduce measures to prevent illegal content appearing on their service, or prevent children from accessing their service (e.g. age verification, fraudulent advertising)?
  • How will Ofcom approach compliance and enforcement? Which sectors are likely to be a priority for Ofcom?
  • How should regulators balance the objectives of online safety with privacy and surveillance concerns?
  • What are the challenges of determining what constitutes ‘legal but harmful’ content for children and what risk assessments will be needed in relation to such content?
  • What should SMEs prioritise with regards to Act compliance? How is Ofcom supporting SMEs with this?
