FAQ / Security & Compliance

Can you help my platform comply with the Online Safety Bill?

The UK Online Safety Bill (OSB) aims at protecting children and adults online in the UK. It is a proposal of a new set of regulations applying in the UK with the main goal of protecting adults and children online and making platforms more accountable about how they ensure the safety of their users. Ofcom, the UK's communications regulator, has been designated as the body responsible for the enforcement of the new regulations.

The OSB will apply to any business hosting user-generated content (UGC).

Compliance, accountability and transparency are the three concepts to keep in mind when talking about the OSB. Content moderation is essential to create and maintain a safe and healthy environment for users, and it becomes even more crucial under these new regulations. It is a service that can:

  • Help platforms comply with the regulations by quickly and proactively detecting illegal and harmful but legal content to ensure the safety of both adults and minors.
  • Make sure minors are protected by only accessing what they are allowed to.
  • Provide guidance to platforms on how identified illegal UGC as well as harmful UGC should be treated under the law.
  • Improve transparency and accountability by providing more visibility on the type of UGC found on the platform and how it is monitored.
