The EU Code of conduct on countering illegal hate speech online

The robust response provided by the European Union

​The EU Code of Conduct

To prevent and counter the spread of illegal hate speech online, in May 2016, the Commission agreed with Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter and YouTube a “Code of conduct on countering illegal hate speech online”.

In the course of 2018, Instagram, Snapchat and Dailymotion took part to the Code of Conduct, Jeuxvideo.com in January 2019, TikTok in 2020 and Linked in 2021. In May and June 2022, respectively, Rakuten Viber and Twitch announced their participation to the Code of Conduct.

 

​How it performs

The implementation of the Code of Conduct is evaluated through a regular monitoring exercise set up in collaboration with a network of organisations located in the different EU countries. Using a commonly agreed methodology, these organisations test how the IT companies are implementing the commitments in the Code.
