Radio station Formats or Key Commitments

Published: 19 July 2022

A Format document sets out the type of output that each commercial radio station is required to broadcast. You can find each commercial radio station’s Format on the ‘Analogue: FM & AM’ section of our website.

Similarly, a Key Commitments document sets out what each community radio station is required to deliver. You can find each community radio station's Key Commitments on the ‘Community Radio Stations’ section of our website.

Please note that Ofcom does not regulate radio stations that only broadcast on the internet. If you have a complaint about an internet only station, you should contact the radio service provider.
