Engaging with other regulators

The UK Regulators’ Network (UKRN) launched on 19 March 2014. It brings together the heads of the various regulators, usually the Chair or Chief Executive, to discuss issues of mutual concern and to report on recent developments in their own particular sector.

The three main objectives of the new network are to improve the consistency of economic regulation across sectors, deliver efficiency of regulation and to improve understanding of how independent economic regulation works in the interests of consumers, markets, investment and economic performance.

UKRN members

The UKRN is a network formed by 13 of the UK’s sectoral regulators, including Ofgem. You can view a list of the members, and find out more about the work of the network on the UKRN website.
