This licence applies to public bodies, including police and fire departments, public corporations and national park authorities. The licence provides annual blanket cover, so you don’t have to seek permissions from copyright owners each time you copy.

  • Produce scans from titles published in the UK and the US
  • Re-use and copy from electronic and online titles published in the UK and the US
  • Store copies on a secure Intranet for up to 30 days
  • NEW: With Website Republishing permissions, post up to five articles (at any one time) per year on your own website from participating print magazines and publisher websites

The cost of the CLA Public Administration Licence is based on the number of employees of HEO grade or above within the organisation. 

Rates effective April 2022

  • The annual fee per employee of HEO grade or above is £30.52 (+VAT)
  • Licences for Public Administration are subject to a minimum annual charge of £148.43 (+VAT)

For example, if you have 100 total employees and 20 of those are identified as Professional Employees, the annual fee for the Public Administration Licence would be 20 x £30.52 = £610.40 + VAT
