Under the Telecommunications Act 1984, the Communications and Utilities Regulatory Authority exercises its functions in the manner that it considers best promotes the interests of consumers, purchasers and other users of telecommunications services in the Isle of Man.

We aim to ensure that all those who run telecommunications systems within the Island are licensed to do so and that each licensee operates under the terms and conditions of its licence.

The Authority liaises closely with Ofcom (the UK regulator) on a range of matters, such as telephone numbering.
