Communications Act 2003

Section 354: Action following review under s. 353

750.If, following a review under section 353, OFCOM consider that the effect of the change of control is prejudicial to any of the matters they have reviewed, then under section 354 they must vary the licence. Any such variation may lead to the inclusion in the licence of conditions that are more burdensome than those included prior to the variation. However, they must be conditions that would have been fulfilled throughout the twelve months immediately before the relevant change of control.

751.The licensee must be given a reasonable opportunity to comment on the report before OFCOM vary the licence. The variation shall not be effective until the change of control actually occurs.
