The majority of data published via the Defra Data Services Platform is published as Open Data. Access to some data we publish is restricted by licensing conditions specific to each dataset.
This restricted data is available to registered users only and, in case of ‘Defra-body contractor’ user accounts, only for use in projects contracted by Defra. Any download requests of restricted data by contractors have to be approved by the relevant Project Manager from the Defra body funding the work.
Download requests approved by Project Managers from the contractor’s own organisation will not be progressed. In this case, the user will receive an email informing them that the download request was rejected.
