Under the BBC Charter and Agreement, regulation of the BBC’s activities passed, on 3 April 2017, 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 the Agreement, including requirements in relation to competition which are enforceable by Ofcom.
On 23 January 2017, Ofcom published a consultation on proposed Procedures for enforcement of BBC competition requirements.
This document summarises the responses 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 the Procedures, which will come into effect on 28 June 2017.
