Our submission to Ofcom's illegal harms consultation

Clean Up The Internet has made a submission to Ofcom’s “Protecting people from illegal harms online” consultation.


Our consultation response consisted of two documents. Firstly, we submitted answers to some of the Ofcom’s pro-forma questions:

Secondly, we submitted a detailed proposal for Ofcom to include, in the Illegal Harms Codes of Practice, a measure requiring platforms to offer their users options to verify their identity:

The second of these documents was prepared after being encouraged to do so by Ofcom staff, who responded constructively to some of the points which we also set out in this earlier blog post.


Clean Up The Internet was also a signatory to a joint statement co-ordinated by the Online Safety Act Network and co-signed by 22 civil society organisations, campaigners, and experts setting out a number of concerns about the proposals.


We will be following Ofcom’s next steps closely, and look forward to continuing the positive dialogue with them as they digest the consultation feedback and (we hope) move to strengthen their proposals.
