Stations Non-broadcaster Bureaux

Bureau Registration

If a Bureau wishes to supply Bureau services using RAJAR data it must be Registered and Licenced with RAJAR. On completing the registration process, Bureaus can only supply data services using RAJAR data if their client is also a subscriber to RAJAR, either through having a broadcast or non-broadcast subscription (see Bureau’s provision of services).

To become Licenced you need to complete a Bureau Registration form, have paid a Licence Fee to RAJAR and returned a signed copy of a Bureau Licence Agreement.

If you have any specific questions please contact us at: subs@rajar.co.uk or phone 020 7395 0630.

Bureau Registration Form

To register with RAJAR for the first time or to renew your registration please complete the registration form and return it to RAJAR.

The Licence year runs from May to April with new registrations and renewals usually taking place during March to ensure everything is set up for pre data release analysis which is usually a couple of weeks before data release.

If this is your first registration with RAJAR: on receipt of your form a Bureau Licence Agreement will be issued in duplicate for signature. Please sign both copies returning one to RAJAR.

Bureau provision of services

A Bureau is only licenced to provide data services using RAJAR data to clients who are also themselves subscribers to RAJAR (see Bureau registration).

The Bureau has an obligation to check with RAJAR before supplying such services. If data is supplied to an un- registered client, the Bureau will be liable for paying the clients annual subscription and is deemed in breach of its Bureau licence agreement with RAJAR.

In the event of an approach by an un registered client requiring a single data request, the Bureau is obliged to discuss this with RAJAR.
