Step 2: Compliance phase

The Commission monitors that gatekeepers comply with the list of positive and negative obligations. The Commission can impose behavioural and structural remedies if a gatekeeper does not comply. The firm cannot support its practice with objective justifications.

The DMA is still in the compliance phase. There are not yet cases.
