Licensing Forum

The Licensing Forum is made up of a group of practitioners from across the public sector who are involved in licensing and copyright. The forum provides an opportunity for them to share best practice and problems and to discuss developments in information policy.

Terms of reference

The terms of reference are to share best practice at practitioner level across central government.

The forum aims to:

  • improve licensing systems and processes
  • ensure greater consistency in licensing and information policy across government
  • increase transparency of licensing and information policy both internally and externally
  • encourage a greater awareness of emerging information policy across government
  • promote good customer service and responsiveness to customer requirements

It is intended that the forum will meet quarterly. The Chair will not be provided by one department but will rotate on a voluntary basis. Meetings will consist of brief presentations by members or guest speakers, followed by group discussion. We will produce a report of the proceedings, to be disseminated online among members and the Advisory Panel on Public Sector Information (APPSI).
