Ofcom’s investigation into ITV

10 August 2020

Following ITV’s disclosure to Ofcom in relation to potential non-compliance with the Broadcasting Code, Ann Cook has temporarily stepped back from her position on the PSA Board of Directors pending the outcome of Ofcom’s investigation. More information about Ofcom’s investigation can be found here.

In addition, the PSA commenced initial enquiries to ensure that ITV’s phone-paid competitions are compliant with our Code of Practice. No further action was required in respect of our Code at this time.
