Charges for Data Searches

Commercial Clients

Early Purple Orchid

The BRMC will normally charge commercial clients for a data search. Such clients include commercial bodies, consultants, non-supporting bodies and those undertaking sponsored research (e.g. university research sponsored by a client).

From 1st April 2015 the charges will be in proportion to the area searched.

Example costs for a standard data search (see Example Data Search for what will be provided) are:

Area (km2) Charge
12.55 (2km radius circle)   £110 + VAT
20 £120 + VAT
28.25 (3km radius circle) £153 + VAT
30 £160 + VAT

We will happily quote for larger areas or customized requirements.

The minimum charge for a request is £110 + VAT.

We do not charge for the data themselves, but to recover the costs of providing the service.

Payment will normally be requested by invoice.

Non-commercial Clients

Charges will normally be waived for bona fide non-commercial users who will use the data for non-commercial purposes. These include non-sponsored researchers, teachers and students; members of the public; charitable or voluntary nature conservation organizations and natural history societies. Our policies however reserve the right to charge if, for example, excessive resources are required to complete a request.

BRMC Supporters

Organizations or individuals who support the BRMC financially, by data supply, or in kind, will be entitled to services agreed on an individual basis
