The UK Government Licensing Framework (UKGLF) provides a policy and legal overview for licensing the re-use of public sector information, both in central government and the wider public sector.

It sets out best practice, standardises the licensing principles for government information, and recommends the use of the Open Government Licence (OGL) for public sector information.

The UK Government Licensing Framework and Open Government Licence form part of the Government's drive to open up access to publicly held information, promoting transparency and enabling wider economic and social gain.
