IFTS members

Any public sector body can apply to become an IFTS member, whether or not they are a Crown body.

Some government departments have delegated authority from the Controller of HMSO to license the re-use of the Crown copyright material which they originate. IFTS accreditation is used as the method of regulating decisions about the licensing of Crown copyright information by those bodies. The Controller of HMSO has also granted limited delegations to parts of government departments which have responsibility for specialised forms of licensing activity. These organisations undergo the IFTS Online Assessed process rather than IFTS accreditation.

Non-Crown bodies can become accredited to the IFTS, although their copyright material is not Crown copyright and is not vested in the Controller of HMSO.
