The Committee of experts on Internet Intermediaries (MSI-NET) was active from 1 January 2016 until 31 December 2017 under the supervision of the CDMSI. It prepared standard setting proposals on the roles and responsibilities of Internet intermediaries. The key results of this sub-group are the preparation of a recommendation by the Committee of Ministers on the roles and responsibilties of internet intermediaries and the preparation of a study on the human rights dimensions of automated data processing techniques (in particular algorithms) and possible regulatory implications.


Following the decision of the Committee of Ministers on 16 March 2022 the Russian Federation is no longer a member of the Council of Europe. The website will be updated as soon as possible to take account of this development.
