Statement on procedures for enforcement of requirements in the BBC Agreement and compliance with Ofcom enforcement action

  • Start: 23 January 2017
  • Status: Closed
  • End: 06 March 2017

The role of the BBC is to produce high quality and distinctive programmes and services which educate, inform and entertain. Given its status as a large, publicly-funded organisation, it is essential that the BBC maintains the highest standards and can be held to account when it fails to meet them.

Under the new Royal Charter and Agreement, regulation of the BBC will pass from the BBC Trust to Ofcom. As part of its new responsibilities Ofcom must establish procedures which ensure the BBC’s compliance with requirements set out in the Charter and Agreement.

On 23 January 2017, Ofcom published a consultation on proposed Procedures for enforcement of requirements in the BBC Agreement and compliance with Ofcom enforcement action.

This document summarises the comments we received on our proposed Procedures, our responses to those comments, and amendments we have made to the Procedures as a result.

We are publishing alongside this document the final version of these Procedures, which will come into effect when Ofcom takes over responsibility for regulating the BBC on the 3 April 2017.
