BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission said on Friday it had requesting Amazon provide more information on the measures the U.S. e-commerce giant has taken to comply with its Digital Services Act (DSA) obligations.

"In particular, Amazon is asked to provide detailed information on its compliance with the provisions concerning transparency of the recommender systems (...)," the EU said in a statement.

Amazon must provide the requested information by July 26, it said.

The DST requires Big Tech players to do more to tackle illegal and harmful content on their platforms.

Amazon said it was reviewing the EU's request.

"We are reviewing this request and working closely with the European Commission. Amazon shares the goal of the European Commission to create a safe, predictable and trusted shopping environment," said a spokesperson for Amazon.

"We think this is important for all participants in the retail industry, and we invest significantly in protecting our store from bad actors, illegal content, and in creating a trustworthy shopping experience. We have built on this strong foundation for DSA compliance," added the spokesperson.
