The Digital Regulation Cooperation Forum

Information about the Digital Regulation Cooperation Forum (DRCF), established to ensure greater cooperation on online regulatory matters.

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and the Office of Communications (Ofcom) formed the DRCF in July 2020. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) joined the DRCF as a full member in April 2021 (having previously been an observer member). Building on the strong working relationships between these organisations, the DRCF was established to ensure a greater level of cooperation, given the unique challenges posed by regulation of online platforms.
