Broadcast Licensing Committee

The Ofcom Board has delegated the discharge of certain of its functions in relation to television and radio broadcast licensing.

The Board's functions in relation to the allocation of capacity on digital terrestrial multiplex B (pursuant to an order from the Secretary of State (Culture), dated 18 April 2008) have been delegated to a committee known as the Broadcast Licensing Committee (BLC), chaired by a member of the Ofcom Board.

(Note: with effect from 1 July 2012 the BLC took over all the functions previously carried out by the Radio Licensing Committee and the DTT Allocation Committee. The BLC also has as part of its remit the licensing of Local TV.)
