Data access is generally provided to users through one of the BARB registered data processing bureaux. The datasets can be purchased directly from BARB, but interrogation of these raw data requires extensive specialist software.

The cost of the data, or other BARB related services provided by a bureau, is additional to the fees charged by BARB.

Small volumes of BARB data, intended for internal use only, are offered via an End User Licence Limited Usage from BARB registered data processing bureaux. End User Licence Limited Usage fees, in addition to the costs of the data, are:

  • Data costing up to a maximum of £14,250; 10 percent of the amount invoiced with a minimum cost of £375
