Communications Act 2003

Section 110: Enforcement of restrictions and conditions

265.This section gives OFCOM powers of enforcement in respect of the restrictions and conditions subject to which the electronic communications code applies. Where it appears to OFCOM that a person to whom the code applies is or has been in breach of any condition or restriction subject to which the code applies, they are obliged to notify that person accordingly and to allow him a specified period of time (usually one month) in which to make representations to OFCOM and to take steps to comply with the condition or restriction or to remedy the breach. This section and sections 111 to 113 implement Article 10 of the Authorisation Directive in the context of the enforcement of those restrictions and conditions.
