Permission requests

How do I submit a permission request?
You should submit a permission request using a permission request form. If it is incomplete, your permission request will not be processed and will be returned to you for more information.

How long will it take to process my permission request?
This depends on the nature of the request and the number of other permission requests received by the BIS. In some cases, we may need to refer the permission request to the author or authors of the work for their consent, which may take time. Therefore, we ask you to submit your request as early in your editorial process as possible.

Will there be a fee?
As a general rule, there is no charge to reproduce or translate BIS material, although there may be certain exceptions (eg for a publication in which copyright is held jointly by the BIS and another organisation which has a policy of charging a fee for reproductions or translations).
