Ofcom’s role in regard to the BBC’s commercial activities is set out in the Charter and Framework Agreement. Our regulation aims to make sure the BBC’s commercial activities do not gain an unfair advantage over competitors by virtue of their relationship with the BBC. To ensure that this is the case, we have put trading and separation requirements in place through a set of requirements and guidance. The BBC must put in place appropriate, robust controls and procedures to make sure it follows the regulation, particularly as the market changes and BBC Studios continues to evolve.
In this review we have sought to better understand how the BBC has implemented the rules we have put in place.
