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.

Update 6 May: The CMA and Ofcom publish joint code of conduct advice for platforms and publishers

In April 2021, the DCMS Secretary of State asked the CMA to work with Ofcom to look specifically at how a code of conduct, proposed as part of the new pro-competition regime for digital markets, would govern the relationships between platforms and content providers such as news publishers. This code aimed to ensure the terms on which platforms and publishers trade are fair and reasonable. The CMA and Ofcom provided this advice to DCMS in November 2021.
