Video-sharing platforms: Ofcom's plan and approach

24 March 2022

This document sets out Ofcom’s approach and plan of work around video sharing platforms (VSP) – websites and apps, established in the UK, that allow users to share video, such as TikTok, OnlyFans and Twitch.

Since the VSP regulations were passed into law in autumn 2020, we have been developing and implementing the regulatory framework to support the new VSP rules, including consulting on new guidance. To accompany the publication of our VSP guidance, this document sets out what we’ll do over the course of this regime to raise standards in user protection and address areas of poor compliance. We also outline the priority areas of focus for the next 12 months.
