CLA Central Government Licence

Covers copying from digital and print books, magazines, journals and websites


The Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) and Central Government have reached a new three-year licence agreement from April 2018 that will see coverage for staff of over 100 departments, agencies, and Non-Departmental Public Bodies (NDPBs).

In addition to the standard blanket coverage to reproduce and share content from digital and print versions of books, journals and magazines, the new Central Government Licence now includes a wider digital repertoire than before. This includes web-only content, bringing the Central Government Licence in line with other CLA public sector licences.
