We aim to contribute constructively to international legislative and regulatory developments which impact on our duties and responsibilities, and which affect UK citizens and consumers, including in areas such as broadband roll-out, universal service, net neutrality and consumer protection.
We do so by engaging with international networks and with counterparts in Europe and around the world in order to pursue a coherent and coordinated approach to international telecommunications regulation.
We actively liaise with:
Before exiting the European Union, Ofcom liaised closely with the European Commission and national regulators in the EU, both bilaterally and through the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC), to help ensure a consistent application of the EU regulatory framework.
We will continue to cooperate with BEREC and EU stakeholders as appropriate under the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement, and collaborate with our European counterparts on the exchange of best practices to address common challenges.
