Full details of Barb’s fees, and terms & conditions of data use, can be found in the Barb rate card. All Barb users pay annual fees which are dependent upon their use of the data.

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 licence fees charged by Barb.
