Register for the PSGA

Public sector organisations can access our essential data and services when they register for the Public Sector Geospatial Agreement (PSGA)

Most public sector organisations are eligible to be members of the PSGA. The agreement applies to public sector organisations and bodies governed by public law across Britain. You need to register to activate your membership and get the benefits of the PSGA, OS data and data from third party suppliers such as Royal Mail.

Public sector organisations include those that are a department, agency or public body in England and Wales or are in the National Public Body Directory for Scotland.

Other public sector organisations such as emergency services, local authorities, and town and parish councils, are also eligible.

The PSGA replaced the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) for England and Wales and the One Scotland Mapping Agreement (OSMA). All existing PSMA and OSMA members are deemed to have accepted the PSGA Member Licence when the PSGA came into force.

Find out if your organisation is already registered.

You can contact us to find out the PSGA lead (Principal Contact) at your organisation. If your organisation is already registered, you can still register for your own access – we automatically alert your Principal Contact if this happens.

If you’re not sure if your organisation qualifies as a member, you should read the criteria for a body governed by public law. If you meet these, you can register. You’ll need to declare you meet the criteria in the registration form.

You should read the PSGA Member Licence [PDF] before registering.
