Policy

Independent audio production companies are responsible for many of the most critically-acclaimed UK podcasts, audiobooks and radio programmes. UK audio companies also are successful internationally, for example in the New York Festivals International Radio Awards.

One of AudioUK’s core functions is to represent the interests of its members, and has over the years built strong relationships with the Government, Parliament, Ofcom and major broadcasters and publishing platforms.

AudioUK is a member of the DCMS Broadcasting, Film, and Production Working Group, and using its expert advice we have drawn up guidelines for safe working in audio production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

AudioUK also contributes to the policy debate in other areas, for example skills policy and increasing diversity in the media industry.
