The Data Communications Company (DCC) is required to report price control information by 31 July, following each regulatory year.
It must report its price control information in accordance with the Regulatory Instructions and Guidance that we publish. In this document we review whether the costs the DCC reported for Regulatory Year 2017/18 are economic and efficient, and set out our proposals.
The DCC can also propose an adjustment to its Baseline Margin values. We assess its proposal and determine whether or not to adjust the Baseline Margin values agreed when the Licence was awarded. We also explain our assessment of the DCC’s application to adjust its External Contract Gain Share values.
We welcome your views on our proposals, and will consider them when we make our decision.
