UDC MRF Use Licences


MRF licence fees are based on the type of use that is to be made of the UDC MRF. These are not publishing licences, but rather terms and conditions of use of MRF data by restricted communities of authorized users, in a non-public environment.

MRF licences are issued by the UDCC Office upon verification and approval of the licence application and following the payment. In the process of application, customers have to state the purpose of UDC MRF use and agree with conditions of use. MRF licences confirm the terms and conditions of use, defined by the UDCC and issue to the client, signed by the UDCC Office only.
