Ofcom (the Office of Communications) is the independent regulator and competition authority for the media and communications industries in the UK. It was created in December 2003 from a merger of the Broadcasting Standards Commission, the Independent Television Commission, Oftel, the Radio Authority and the Radio Communications Agency. It has also been responsible for the regulation since 1 October 2011, of the UK’s postal services, and since 3 April 2017 of the BBC. Information and documents on the site include consultations, codes of practice, guidance, reports, and selected material from the former sites of the defunct “legacy regulators”. A Competition and Consumer Enforcement Bulletin may be found within “About Ofcom”, “News and updates”.
