All FETA and Forth Road Bridge material is the copyright of the Forth Estuary Transport Authority unless stated otherwise. If you wish to copy any information within the scheme, you may do so in any format for any non-commercial purpose provided that:
- it is reproduced accurately;
- it is not used in a misleading context;
- the source and copyright status of the material are acknowledged; and
- the material you produce is published or distributed without charge
Applications for permission to reproduce material for any commercial purpose may be made to Barry Colford, Chief Engineer & Bridgemaster.
In most cases the copyright holder will be obvious from the documents. In cases where the copyright is unclear, however, it is the responsibility of the person accessing the information to locate and seek the permission of the copyright holder before reproducing the material or in any other way breaching the rights of the copyright holder.
Re-use of Public Sector Information
Access to the information does not mean that copyright has been waived, nor does it give the recipient the right to re-use the information for a commercial purpose. If you intend to re-use information obtained from the scheme, and you are unsure whether you have the right to do so, you are advised to make a request to Forth Estuary Transport Authority to re-use the information. Your request will be considered under the Re-Use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005 (RPSIs) for which a charge may be imposed. In the event that a charge is payable, you will be advised what this is and how it has been calculated. If you would like more information on the re-use of information, please contact Gillian Laurie, Office Manager.
Guidance on the RPSI regulations can also be found on the Office of Public Sector Information (OPSI) website at http://www.opsi.gov.uk/advice/psi-regulations/index.htm We can provide you with a copy of this information if you do not have internet access.
