Crown Copyright Material
All materials produced by HSL are subject to Crown
Copyright. HSL holds a Delegation of Authority from
the Controller of Her Majesty's Stationery Office, which allows us
to licence our Crown Copyright materials and enable other
organisations to re-use them wherever possible.

research reports commissioned by the Health and Safety Executive
(HSE) or other commercial customers. Further details of
HSL publications can be found on our Publications page.
Examples of standard licence conditions and pricing
information are available by following the relevant links in
the table above. HSL reserve the right to apply discretionary
exemptions to charges for licencing our Crown Copyright
materials. These are most often applied for limited academic
re-use or where the perceived contribution of the re-use (in terms
of improvement to health and safety) can justifiably offset the
standard licence fee. Such exemptions are solely at the
discretion of HSL, although we welcome your justification should
you wish to be considered for such an exemption.
