Open Government Licence

The Open Government Licence (OGL) is a simple set of terms and conditions that facilitates the re-use of a wide range of public sector information free of charge.

It supersedes the previously available PSI Click-Use Licences. Any information covered by Crown copyright that was available for re-use under the PSI Click-Use Licence may be re-used under the OGL.

For example, all content available on is available under the licence, unless otherwise stated. This is indicated by a clear statement at the foot of each web page.

The OGL requires you to attribute the information provider and/or source of the information. Attribution statements usually include the title of the information resource, if applicable, its owner and/or creator and the date it was published or created. Where possible, you should also provide a link to the information used, if it is available online, and to the OGL.
