The Re-use of Public Sector Information - Bank of England

The Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations (SI 2005 No 1515) provide a framework for third parties to re-use information which is accessible from public sector bodies, including the Bank. There are certain limitations in the Regulations; in particular they do not apply to computer programmes or to documents held by the Bank, where a third party owns copyright or other intellectual property rights in the document, nor do they apply to documents held by the Bank's Archive.

Information, in respect of which copyright is owned by the Bank of England and is available on the Bank’s website is available for re-use for the purposes, and subject to the terms and conditions, set out in the website copyright notice and in the notice for the Statistical Interactive Database.

Requests for any further usage (eg reproduction of Bank website material for commercial purposes or re-use of other Bank material which is not on the website) should be in writing, specifying your name and address for correspondence, the information to be re-used and the purpose for which it is to be re-used and addressed to:
