The British Geological Survey is to introduce new direct licence fees from 1 April 2024

FROM 1 April 2024, the British Geological Survey (BGS) will apply a 5% increase to its direct licence fees for all data products. This means that any direct licence issued or renewed on or after 1 April 2024 will reflect this increased price. Existing data licensees will not be affected until such time as their licence is next due for renewal, after 1 April 2024.

BGS has not increased its data product licence fees for many years: this 2024 increase takes into account inflationary and cost pressures faced by BGS, including increased staff costs, and follows a review of Office for National Statistics guidance with regard to inflation and price indices.

 

Going forwards, BGS will undertake annual price reviews and will communicate any future licence fee changes (from 2025) as appropriate.
