This is the Open Data Institute (ODI)’s response to the UK communications reglator Ofcom’s proposed plan of work 2021/22: ‘Making communications work for everyone’.
Our consultation response focuses on three areas within the planning document: the review of the Royal Mail’s Postcode Address File (PAF), a need for open communications, and the plans for Ofcom to regulate online harms.
In particular, we outline that:
- Ofcom should review the cost and governance of the Royal Mail’s Postcode Address File (PAF)
- The ODI supports Ofcom’s commitment to proceed with its proposals on Open Communications
- The ODI supports Ofcom in its plans to regulate online harms
