The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) is the lead department in relation to implementing the European Electronic Communications Code as a whole. Article 110 refers to a “Public warning system”. As a number of organisations have responsibility for warning and informing the public, the Minister for Implementation has asked the Cabinet Office to coordinate a review to establish whether there is a case for a national mobile alerting scheme, in addition to the systems already in place. Further information about the implementation of the Code and ministerial responsibilities will be made available in due course.
