Ipswich Community Radio failed to log output

Ipswich Community Radio is in significant breach of its licence after failing to record its output.

The station was unable to provide a copy of its output after a listener complained to Ofcom alleging offensive language in a music track on 7th February 2016.

Bosses at Ipswich Community Radio explained that equipment at the station had been removed, affecting the hard drive storing recordings between 5 and 10 February 2016, and it was therefore unable to provide the recording.

But because the station worked to fix the situation and put procedures in place to stop it happening again, Ofcom said the matter is now resolved.

“The failure to provide Ofcom with the recording requested is a significant breach of ICR’s licence, which, in this particular case, significantly affects Ofcom’s ability to assess the station’s compliance with the Code. However, taking into account the particular circumstances of this incident and the remedial action by ICR, we consider the matter resolved,” Ofcom said.

The regulator took the opportunity to remind the Licensee of its obligations under the terms of its licence to ensure that recordings of its output are retained for 42 days and provided to Ofcom on request, and should similar compliance issues arise Ofcom may take further regulatory action.
