Ofcom's activities and those of the companies it regulates are increasingly influenced by international developments.
The communications sector is becoming global in nature. In the light of this, we work closely with international institutions, other national communications regulators and multilateral organisations. Ofcom represents the UK on radio spectrum issues in key international groups, and participates in international fora on both telecoms and broadcasting matters.
We also seek to learn and share regulatory experiences and best practice with fellow regulatory counterparts. This proactive engagement includes regulatory and inter-governmental bilaterals, participating in multilateral debates and speaking at international events to exchange insights and experiences and to stay up-to-date with key developments.
We publish our responses to international consultations.
We strive to be open and transparent with UK stakeholders and consumer groups about our international activities and aim to regularly communicate with them, both through publishing agendas and slides of previous meetings, ad-hoc meetings, and briefing and coordination sessions covering all areas of work and electronic forums.
We host an International Stakeholders Forum (ISF) every four months. This is the primary means through which we aim to update UK stakeholders on our international activities. We also use these as an opportunity to share information, as well as impressions, on international policy developments.
You can out more about the ISF in International stakeholder engagement.
As well as this forum, we hold dedicated spectrum briefing sessions.
