CnaM names ten as video-sharing services

The media watchdog Coimisiún na Meán (CnaM) has designated ten services in Ireland as video-sharing platforms.

As a result, they will be covered by a new Online Safety Code, a draft of which is currently subject to a public consultation.

The finalised code will form part of Ireland’s overall online-safety framework, taking effect from February this year.


The draft code sets out measures that designated video-sharing platforms will be obliged to implement to keep their users, especially children, safe online.

This framework is based on the Online Safety and Media Regulation Act 2022, the EU Digital Services Act, and the EU Terrorist Content Online Regulation.

The services named today (9 January) are:

  • Facebook,
  • Instagram,
  • YouTube,
  • Udemy,
  • TikTok,
  • LinkedIn,
  • X,
  • Pinterest,
  • Tumblr, and
  • Reddit.
