Public consultation on fake news and online disinformation

The consultation will collect views from all parties concerned by fake news across the EU as regard the scope of the problem and the effectiveness of voluntary measures already put in place by industry to prevent the spread of disinformation online. The objective is also to better understand the rationale and possible directions for action at EU and/or national level.


The results of the public consultation will help assess the effectiveness of current actions by market players and other stakeholders, the need for scaling them up and introducing new actions to address different types of fake news.

Two questionnaires are available: one for the citizens and one for legal persons and journalists reflecting their professional experience of fake news and online disinformation.

The consultation will close on 23 February 2018.

You can reply in any EU language.

Go to the consultation.
