Caps By Supply Type - Free Pick Up Copies - Regional Publications

PDF Print

Definition

The caps in this section set the maximum number of copies that you can claim for designated supply types for Free Pick Up Copies (for non-daily publications and for daily publications distributed airside and on trains). 

 

Principles

  1. Copies must meet the requirements of the Free Pick Up Copy category

  2. If the number of copies supplied is less than the cap then you must claim the actual supply

  3. You cannot claim copies supplied over and above the cap

  4. Caps cannot be ‘double-counted’ at a particular location already subject to its own cap

  5. Caps are set by the Reporting Standards Group

 

Requirements | Caps Guidance  


Requirements 

1. Copies must meet the requirements of the Free Pick Up Copy category

 No additional requirements.

 2. If the number of copies supplied is less than the cap then you must claim the actual supply  

 No additional requirements.

 3. You cannot claim copies supplied over and above the cap

  1. If demand exceeds the cap at a particular location you may claim a greater number of copies than the caps below if you have documentary evidence demonstrating a commensurate level of demand.  Note: You may ask us for advice before claiming a copy count higher than your cap.

 4. Caps cannot be ‘double-counted’ at a particular location already subject to its own cap

  1. For example if you distribute copies at a distinct betting shop outlet within an hotel then you cannot claim distribution up to the permitted cap for a betting shop and in addition up to the permitted cap for an hotel. However if you distribute at two different points in this environment you can claim up to the quantity of the largest cap at that location. 

 5. Caps are set by the Reporting Standards group

  1.  You may ask us or any member of the Reporting Standards Group to table a proposed cap to be considered for inclusion.
