About this document
Ofcom is required by law to publish guidelines setting out how it proposes to determine the amount of the penalties which it imposes. Ofcom must have regard to these guidelines when setting the amount of any penalty, other than penalties for breaches of competition law.
In July 2015, Ofcom published a consultation proposing to amend the guidelines. Having carefully considered the responses received, Ofcom sets out its decisions in this document.
The revised penalty guidelines we have decided to issue have been published today on our website (a copy of which can be found in the Annex to this statement).
