|Security Union: European Commission welcomes political agreement on removing terrorist content online|
The Commission welcomes today’s political agreement between the European Parliament and the Council on the proposal for a Regulation on preventing the dissemination of terrorist content online.
Once adopted, the Regulation will ensure that online platforms play a more active role in detecting terrorist content online and that such content is removed within a maximum of one hour.
The agreement will also help to counter the spread of extremist ideologies online – a vital part of preventing attacks and addressing radicalization.
These rules are an essential part of the Commission’s Counter-Terrorism Agenda.A full press release is available online.
