The BBC is established under a Royal Charter. The current Charter came into force on 1 January 2017 and runs until 31 December 2027. It explicitly recognises the BBC's editorial independence and sets out the Corporation's public purposes.
Under the Charter, the BBC is governed by a Board, which is responsible for ensuring the BBC fulfils its mission and public purposes as set out in the Charter.
The Board sets the strategic and creative direction of the BBC and is responsible for the proper, effective and independent exercise of all the functions of the BBC in accordance with the provisions of the BBC’s Charter and the Framework Agreement.
Led by the Director-General, the Executive Committee is responsible for the operational management of the BBC, which includes directors from across the BBC.
The BBC is regulated by Ofcom, which is the independent regulator and competition authority for the UK communications industries, with responsibilities across television, radio, telecommunications and wireless communications services.
Government responsibility for broadcasting and creative industries in the UK lies with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
