Organisations we work with


The CMA, the ICO and Ofcom have together formed the Digital Regulation Cooperation Forum (DRCF) to support regulatory coordination in online services, and cooperation on areas of mutual importance.

The forum strengthens existing collaboration and coordination between the three regulators. It aims to harness our collective expertise when data, privacy, competition, communications and content interact.

The DRCF workplan for 2021-22 sets out a roadmap for how Ofcom, the CMA and the ICO will greatly increase the scope and scale of our cooperation. This will involve pooling expertise and resources, working more closely together on online regulatory matters of mutual importance, and reporting on results annually.

We invite comments and discussion on the DRCF’s plan of work and priorities for the year ahead. These should be submitted to DRCF@ofcom.org.uk.

The response complements the DRCF's 2021-22 workplan, published in March 2021, which sets out our immediate plan for greater cooperation.
