Content, Safety & Liability Subgroup

The Content, Safety & Liability Subgroup brings members together to share the latest updates and discuss and agree positions related to online harms. A long-standing priority area for ISPA, our recent activity includes developing an ISP position in the online harm debate, work around the impact of DNS-over-HTTPS on ISPs, proportionate implementation of policies like age verification and working with organisations like the Internet Watch Foundation.


Recent consultation and policy submissions can be found below.
