The Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005 let you ask a public authority in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, including Government Departments, if you can reuse public information ('information assets') identified in an information asset register for that purpose.

You must make requests for information from us in writing (e.g. letter, fax, email). You must clearly state that you wish to receive the information for the purpose of reuse, what information you are requesting, and supply your name and address.

You can request information about Information Assets

An asset is any information that we produce that is of interest or value to the organisation itself and potentially to others.

Some local authorities have achieved this by the publication of an asset list or register.  We don’t intend to produce a separate information asset register, as all significant documents in our FOI Publication Scheme are available for re-use (except for those documents where charges apply).

We will respond to your request within 20 working days of receiving it.  If we can’t, we will explain why and let you know when you will receive a reply.

You must acknowledge information assets as our copyright.  Reuse of 'third party' material, such as reports commissioned by consultants, requires a copyright agreement between you and the third party.

Detailed terms and conditions are available from the Open Government Licence.
