Event description

Description

You are invited to register to attend a policy discussion with Ofcom, and early registration is strongly recommended.

Ofcom is consulting on detailed proposals for how it will regulate the BBC’s performance under its new Royal Charter, which outlines how it should deliver for audiences. This includes a document for audiences in Scotland. Ofcom becomes the first independent, external regulator of the BBC on 3 April 2017. Ofcom’s role is to hold the Corporation to account against the delivery of its public purposes, while its new unitary board will govern and run the BBC. Ofcom will carefully monitor the BBC through annual performance reviews, a ‘health check’ halfway through the new 11-year Charter, and scrutiny of the BBC’s forthcoming annual plan on how it will fulfil its requirements. The new Charter sets clear objectives for the BBC to serve audiences, and puts a sharpened focus on distinctive, creative and high quality programmes.

The draft ‘operating licence’, published on 29th March 2017, sets clear requirements on the BBC that are achievable and affordable within existing licence fee funding, and which will uphold the quality of the BBC’s programmes.

Ofcom has also published a suite of other documents today, including an ‘operating framework’, which sets out our regulatory approach for the BBC. These are available to view on the Ofcom website.

If you have any questions, please contact Ann Packard FRSA: apmcich@btinternet.com
