The European Commission is seeking input on a template related to reporting on consumer profiling techniques under Article 15 of the Digital Markets Act (DMA). This template will be used by designated gatekeepers to describe their consumer profiling techniques and submit annual reports. Its purpose is to enhance transparency, fairness, and competition in the market by avoiding dominant players using deep consumer profiling to hinder competition.

The Commission is particularly interested in feedback on the minimum information that gatekeepers should include in their reports to achieve the objectives of the DMA. The consultation is open to all citizens, companies, and organisations, including potential gatekeepers, consumer interest groups, data experts, competent authorities, platform business users, and auditors.

Submissions can be made in any EU language and should be sent before 15 September 2023. Non-confidential submissions will be published on the Commission’s website for the Digital Markets Act. Stakeholder feedback will be used to finalise the template, which may be updated regularly.
