What do we charge for?
If the information is readily available and you just need copies, then we may make a charge for photocopying, scanned copies or use of digital photography. The fee will depend on the amount of information you ask for.
If your request does incur charges, we will ask you if you would like to continue with the request before we start the work.
Publications already on sale
We will not copy publications which have been produced for sale. Where this is the case, we will charge the normal sale price for the publication. Where the information is already available, we will give you details of the publication and where to get it. We will let you know about any charges when we receive your request.
Charges for information that is not in the publication scheme
If you request information that is not available under the publication scheme, our aim is to make as much as possible available to you free of charge in digital format. However, where it will take time to prepare the information you want, that is over the limit of £450, we may refuse to supply the information or charge for that work.
If we refuse a request for information
We will not charge you if we refuse a request for information. Nor will there be a charge to appeal against our refusal to supply the information requested or where you appeal against the charges we would make. Where information is available and a charge is payable, we will only provide the information after we receive the appropriate fee.
