Radio stations in the UK are regulated by law. The statutory regulator is OFCOM which awards licences and regulates content in accordance with the Broadcast Code.

LBC strives to operate within the conditions of its licence and the Code at all times and welcomes comments about its output which are considered at a senior level.
