Introduction

Ofcom's activities and those of the companies we regulate are increasingly influenced by international developments.

Content

Ofcom’s priorities for 2014-2015, as set out in its draft Annual Plan, will be to maintain audience confidence in broadcast content. Ofcom will continue to make an important contribution to the government's priority of improving outcomes for audiences and online consumers. This includes work on child protection online, and contributing to a common media standards framework.
