The Re-Use of Public Sector Information

What is meant by "re-use"?

Information is generally produced by Worcestershire County Council as part of its statutory duty to carry out public functions (its public task).  A re-use of that information will occur when that information is used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally produced.

The Regulations do not require WCC to permit re-use of its documents.  However, where we do permit a re-use to one party for a purpose which is outside the scope of our public task, the Regulations require us to consider requests from others in a fair and transparent manner. Where re-use is permitted by more than one party, this must be on the same terms and conditions for comparable categories of re-use.
