The Online Harms White Paper, published on 8 April, sets out the proposed scope of its regulatory framework to improve user safety online. This includes online services that facilitate the hosting or discovery of user-generated content, and interaction between users. While this would not include organisations that are solely technology manufacturers, all services within the digital ecosystem have a responsibility for encouraging user safety.
