Commercial Holdings Board

   The Commercial Holdings Board is responsible for the governance, assurance and oversight of the BBC’s commercial subsidiaries

   The BBC Board is the main decision making body for all of the BBC, including the BBC’s commercial activities, which are undertaken through commercial subsidiaries.

   The BBC Board exercises control over the BBC’s commercial subsidiaries through the BBC Commercial Holdings Board.
