The Coal Authority recently announced that it would be reviewing its pricing structure and publishing further details on its website in the New Year.
The Authority has now completed its review, which follows its announcement to licence coal mining data to enable others to develop and sell coal mining search reports and create a commercial market with more choice for customers. The change means that the Authority will now have to operate in this commercial marketplace.
The review of its reports and services has looked at the wider marketplace, customer expectations and the ongoing investment needed to meet customer needs. These are reflected in the new pricing structure, which will come into effect from 29 February 2016.
