Towards the creation of a stakeholder platform on EU online trustmarks
The Digital Agenda for Europe foresees to "create a stakeholder platform by 2012 for for EU online trustmarks, notably for retail websites". (Action 17). In support of this action, the Commission has launched a study on European online trustmarks in e-commerce, addressing amongst other the possible approach and missions of the referred platform. The preliminary findings of the study are presented here.
Key issues and questions identified in the study are presented in the form of a commentable paper below. You can provide your inputs directly in the document, elaborating on the assumptions and replying to the questions, as well as commenting on the contributions from others.
The comments will be discussed at the Digital Assembly workshop on e-commerce, on 21 June. The persons who have provided the most valuable online contributions will be invited to present those contributions at the workshop.
The Commission will consider this feedback, together with the results from the study mentioned above, for the future policy steps regarding trustmarks, notably regarding the stakeholders platform.
