The Commission consists of a Chairman, Deputy Chairman and up to 10 Members including National Members for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, all appointed by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport.
The Commission is supported by a full-time staff with specialist regulatory and licensing expertise, and by a range of advisory committees. It meets eleven times a year to determine ITC policy, with advice and information from the chief executive and the directors and staff of the principal ITC groups and departments.
The ITC employs around 200 permanent staff to carry out its licensing and regulatory work. They include specialists in licensing, economics, technology, public affairs and the regulation of programmes and advertising. The ITC also has six national and regional offices which maintain contact with viewers and with locally based licensees.
