The Ofcom Broadcasting Code (with the Cross-promotion Code and the On Demand Programme Service Rules)
The Ofcom Broadcasting Code ("the Code"), the most recent version of which took effect on 1 January 2019, covers all programmes broadcast on or after 1 January 2019.
We have also published Guidance for broadcasters on the Ofcom Broadcasting Code which can be viewed in each section of the Code below.
Programmes broadcast prior to 1 January 2019 are covered by the version of the Code that was in force at the date of broadcast. See our Legacy Codes for previous versions of the Broadcasting Code.
