Copyright - Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005

The Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005 came into force on 1 July 2005.  As the title suggests, the purpose of the Regulations is to establish a framework that provides for the effective re-use of public sector information.  The Regulations define 're-use' as the use by a person of a document held by a public sector body for a purpose other than the initial purpose for which that document was produced.

Policy advice on the re-use of public sector information, best practice and the complaints process under the Regulations can be found on www.legislation.gov.uk.
