TikTok needs more preparation for new European Union digital rules to ensure user safety online, according to European Commissioner Thierry Breton. A stress test conducted at the platform’s Dublin office revealed that more work is needed for the Digital Services Act.

TikTok is committed to implementing the Digital Service Act (DSA) and enhancing transparency and accountability. The law, set to take effect on August 25, will force companies to combat hate speech, disinformation, and other harmful content on their sites. The EU has offered stress tests to help companies prepare, with TikTok conducting the first at its San Francisco headquarters. The tests cover child protection, recommender systems, content moderation, illegal content, data access, and transparency. TikTok is making organizational improvements, such as changes to its content recommendation systems and more transparency.
