Our response to Ofcom’s call for feedback on its proposed plan of work 2021/22 ‘Making communications work for everyone’

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
