eco Complaints Office releases 2021 annual report
2021 was a milestone year for the eco Complaints Office, marking 25 years of dedication to combatting illegal content on the Internet. In commemoration of this anniversary, they released their 2021 Annual Report.
Transparency creates trust. For many years, the eco Complaints Office has been reporting transparently on its working approach and achievements in the fight against illegal content on the internet. For the 2021 year, we have also compiled an Annual Report, which we virtually presented on 5 April 2022 alongside June Lowery-Kingston, Head of Unit "Accessibility, Multilingualism & Safer Internet", European Commission. In addition to the statistics, we reported on our working approach and cooperation as well as our engagement in various committees and initiatives. For an effective fight against illegal internet content, it is important to be networked with many relevant players, both nationally and internationally.
Thus, we want to thank our colleagues in the INHOPE Network for their support in the fight against illegal content. With your reports, it was possible to achieve a 100% success rate for German cases at an average of 2,65 days and with your help a global success rate of 97,2% at an average of 5,3 days, even though we had an increase by more than 50% of actionable reports compared to the last year.

We are looking forward to continuing to work together for the good of the internet.'
