FCS Member Groups

FCS Industry Forum

The FCS Industry Forum is the membership group that looks at the strategic and competition issues for the telephony, broadband and numbering companies delivering communications services. It reports to the FCS board on policy issues affecting this sector of the FCS membership 

The Forum is co-chaired by Dave Dadds of DRD Communications and Itret Latif of SSE.

The Forum membership comprises all relevant FCS member companies.  It takes a deliberately high-level view of industry developments, drawing on the detailed work undertaken by the various FCS committees and standing relationships with Openreach, the Equivalence of Access Board, PhonepayPlus and the Office of the Telecommunications Adjudicator
