Re-use of Public Sector Information (PSI)

New regulations governing the re-use of public sector information came into force in July 2005 (Statutory Instrument 1515).

These provide that public sector bodies have a discretion to permit the 're-use' of information and sets out guidelines for doing so.

Other than for commercial purposes the we are happy to permit re-use but cannot accept any liability arising from the use of the information.

If you wish to re-use information that has been made available to you through FOI for commercial purposes you will need to apply for permission in writing or by email to the IT Standards Manager.
