Consultation: Ofcom's approach to enforcement – revising the Regulatory Enforcement Guidelines

  • Start: 24 May 2022
  • Status: Open
  • End: 19 July 2022

Ofcom is the independent regulator, competition authority and designated enforcer of consumer protection law for the UK communications sector. In this role we may need to take enforcement action in the interests of citizens and consumers.

Our Regulatory Enforcement Guidelines set out how Ofcom will approach the enforcement of regulatory requirements and consumer protection law relating to the industries for which we are responsible. We are consulting on a proposed revision of our Regulatory Enforcement Guidelines to:

  • include new enforcement powers; and
  • simplify the information explaining our different enforcement powers, to reflect more clearly how we carry out investigations.
