DSA Statements of Reasons Transparency report
Interactive DSA Statements of Reason report
Article 17 of the Digital Services Act (DSA) obliges providers of hosting services to send clear and specific statements of reasons to any affected recipient when they remove or otherwise restrict availability of and access to information provided by the recipient. In other words, providers of hosting services need to inform their users of the content moderation decisions they take and explain the reasons behind those decisions..
The Very Large Online Platforms (VLOPS) have to submit this informtion. The DSA has a transparency report, however it’s not that easy to navigate, so we’ve created a way more user friendly report below. You can select items on the charts or tables, and use the filters to get to the data you need. For example, Google Shopping has nearly 50% of all SORs, and if you want to take those out of the report, click on ‘platform; and deselect Google Shopping. If there is anything else you’d like to see, drop us a line here.

16/11 Update: Scope or platform Service
It may also be a reporting issue. When delving into TikTok, whilst content has been categorised as 'scope of platform', when looking at the specific content, it has actually been documented as 'Sexual content', and it appears that TikTok are merely reporting this incorrectly. The table to the right is a sample of 1000 SORs that fall under the general 'Scope of Platform Service' category.
