2020 Access and Usage Agreement and Policies
Following two rounds of industry consultation and a subsequent review period for the proposed amendments to the 2020 legal documentation, the 2020 DSB Access and Usage Agreement and Policies have been finalised.
The changes are a result of industry feedback that has been received over the last 12 months including the annual consultation on the 2020 service provision, updates based on the experience gained from the operational service, as well as editorial, formatting and grammatical corrections. Details of the annual consultation and Final Consultation Report are available below.
