Digital Regulation Cooperation Forum (DRCF)


The CMA, the ICO, the FCA and Ofcom have together formed the Digital Regulation Cooperation Forum (DRCF) – to work together on areas of mutual importance in regulating online services.

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

Contact drcf@ofcom.org.uk for more information.

Update 29 November 2021 – technology horizon scanning

The DRCF has launched a technology horizon scanning programme, to provide a coherent view of new and emerging digital markets and technologies.

Our immediate priorities are to:

  • make it easier for people find DRCF members’ digital research;
  • jointly engage with UK SMEs and tech start-up communities and academia; and
  • accelerate our knowledge building in new or rapidly development technologies and markets.

To gain the widest possible range of views, we are launching an ‘always open’ line of communication through a new email mailbox: JoiningUpOnFutureTech@ofcom.org.uk.
