The Operating Framework and related documents

29 March 2017

Effective from 3 April 2017, Ofcom becomes the BBC's first external regulator.

As required under the BBC’s Royal Charter, Ofcom has developed an 'Operating Framework' for the BBC, covering regulation of the BBC’s performance, compliance with content standards and impact on competition.

This page gathers together the different parts of the Operating Framework and other documents relevant to Ofcom’s regulation of the BBC, and will remain updated.

For copies of consultations, regulatory statements, news releases and other useful information relating to Ofcom and the BBC issued before 3 April 2017, see BBC regulation.
