Licensing service

If you'd like to reproduce or publish any of our material please download and complete our Reproduction Permission Request form.

You'll find guidance notes on page 2 of the form.

We'll tell you whether we can issue permission, and if there is a charge. We'll aim to do this within 15 working days of receipt of your completed form. We'll ask for your confirmation before raising an invoice for any reproduction fee, and we'll then email or post our permission letter to you.
