Re-Use of Public Sector Information               
  IFTS logo

The Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005 came into force on 1st July, 2005.  

The Regulations www are designed to allow re-use of public sector information for commercial purposes.  They provide a statutory framework through which you can apply for a licence to re-use public sector information.  Re-use means that the information is used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally produced.

The Regulations do not require the Council to permit re-use of its documents.  However, where it does permit a re-use to one party it must consider requests from others in a fair and transparent manner.

The Regulations impose the following main obligations upon a public sector body:

  • to publish a list of its documents which are available for re-use.  This list is referred to as an Information Asset Register.   
  • to provide a clear statement of the arrangements for re-use of its information
  • to clearly explain any applicable charges for re-use and any licence terms and conditions
  • to process applications for re-use in a timely, open and transparent manner and through fair, consistent and non-discriminatory processes
  • to establish a quick and easily accessible complaints system.

The Council's Policy on the Commercial Re-Use of Information Word is available to view.
