Online Harm – the NCF response to the consultation

We are giving digital issues in the home a lot of our attention and welcomed the chance to respond to the consultation on Online Harm.

We particularly wanted to emphasise in our response the importance of staying on top of what is a very fast moving area and so recommend an effective and strong Market Monitoring and Enforcement Policy. Secondly this is a moment for drawing down all our national and international resources in the standard making arena.

We see Parliament having a vital role to play in backing up the monitoring and enforcement regime. They can review and scrutinise the regulator – whose role would be much more effective if enhanced as we suggest in our latest recommendations to beef up the BEIS regulator code.

The Key Publications page on the website are where you will find our views and recommendations on a variety of consumer issues.

What’s next?

Following the success of the last congress, Zero Carbon by 2050, we should like to make definite plans for a follow-up congress focussing on the digital home.  As its not going to be possible to have a face-to-face meeting of the usual kind due to the distancing regulations which will be in force for some time to come, we are looking into the possibility of a virtual congress. 

 

Themes to be discussed might be privacy and security, product safety and the environmental impact and performance of the products available.
