Ofcom is tasked with holding the BBC to account in relation to its output and services, using the range of regulatory tools at our disposal.

These tools include:

  • setting enforceable regulatory conditions on the BBC’s UK public services through the BBC’s operating licence;
  • a new performance measurement framework to assess compliance with the regulatory conditions and examine the BBC’s wider performance;
  • an annual report on these performance measures and the BBC’s compliance with the regulatory conditions; and
  • at least two in-depth reviews of the BBC’s performance during the Charter period. We can also conduct ad hoc reviews, where we feel appropriate.
