Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation

Operation and Resourcing of Coimisiún na Meán: Digital Services Commissioner

Dr. John Evans:

It is up to the bodies themselves to put in the applications. In due course and as we build capacity, very soon we will have the mechanisms to take the applications and assess them. We also have the guidance, as I had said earlier. We will do a bit of a push to let people know. Prior to 17 February we had been in contact with a few organisations who expressed an interest in becoming trusted flaggers. We have a reasonable idea of who are the possible candidates.
