The Digital Services Act (DSA), obliges providers of hosting services to inform their users of the content moderation decisions they take and explain the reasons behind those decisions in so-called statements of reasons.
To enhance transparency and facilitate scrutiny over content moderation decisions, providers of online platforms need to submit these statements of reasons to the DSA Transparency Database. The database allows to track the content moderation decisions taken by providers of online platforms in almost real-time. It also offers various tools for accessing, analysing, and downloading the information that platforms need to make available when they take content moderation decisions, contributing to the monitoring of the dissemination of illegal and harmful content online.
