Approved applications

06 April 2021

Current approved applications and those granted in the last 12 months are set out below, though this is not exhaustive.

Between 2005 and 2008, notifications of approved applications were issued by e-mail to subscribers to Ofcom’s Broadcast e-mails. From June 2008 to January 2016, notifications were also posted on this page. Where we have consulted on a consent request, this is also published on our Consultations and statements page.

We consulted during October and November 2020 on the request from the BBC to broadcast exclusive live coverage of the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final 2021. The Final is due to take place at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 17 July 2021.

Ofcom received no responses to the consultation. Having considered the information supplied by the BBC in support of its application, Ofcom has decided to grant consent to the BBC's exclusive live coverage.

Previously approved applications can be accessed via the National Archives.
