Consultation: Short-term restricted service licensing review

  • Start: 03 October 2019
  • Status: Open
  • End: 31 October 2019

Currently, Ofcom generally does not:

  • grant the same applicant more than two short-term restricted service licences (SRSL) in a single year, or more than one SRSL a year if the service is within the M25;
  • grant SRSLs where the service proposed to be provided does not appear to be different from what is available on the commercial and community services in the area of broadcast.

We propose to cease to apply these two policies, and are consulting on this proposal.
