In December 2014 the BBC proposed to make a set of changes to its UK Public Services. In particular:
The BBC’s Royal Charter and Agreement requires the BBC Trust to undertake a Public Value Test (PVT) before a decision is taken to make a significant change to its UK Public Services. The PVT comprises two elements – a Public Value Assessment (PVA) and a Market Impact Assessment (MIA).
The Terms of Reference for this MIA are published below.
For the purposes of conducting the MIA, Ofcom is seeking to answer a range of questions about the way in which the BBC’s proposed service changes affect the services (or potential future services) offered by other stakeholders.
A stakeholder questionnaire is published below that sets out the range of questions that Ofcom would like to receive stakeholder responses to.
