Ofcom, the UK’s communications regulator and future UK online safety regulator, is in the early stages of developing its future transparency reporting regime for online platforms. This workshop will bring together Trust & Safety practitioners, academics, researchers and members of civil society in a conversation around transparency reporting and meaningful metrics. The discussions will inform Ofcom’s development of its transparency requirements for platforms, allowing key stakeholders to input early into our regulatory strategy. The workshop will feature a brainstorming session on meaningful metrics for different kinds of online platforms, a discussion of how transparency reporting can best benefit different audiences, and an analysis of lessons learned from platforms’ first transparency reports provided under the Digital Services Act.
