A Review of the Governance and Regulation of the BBC

An independent review into the governance and regulation of the BBC led by Sir David Clementi.



As part of the ongoing process to review the BBC’s Royal Charter to make sure it remains a valued public broadcaster, Sir David Clementi was asked by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport to submit a report on how the BBC is governed and regulated.

The Review looks at:

  • the model of governance and regulation of the BBC;
  • the specific mechanisms of governance and regulation; and
  • the way in which the BBC and the bodies that govern and regulate it engage with licence fee payers and industry.
