BBC Prior Approval process 

Blanket licence

PRS for Music has granted the BBC a blanket licence which covers them for the use of MCPS/PRS repertoire on non-commercial public service activities including TV, Radio and Online services (e.g. iPlayer).

This agreement covers the vast majority of uses. However, some restrictions apply where the BBC is required to obtain your approval.

Prior approval – your permission needed

Areas where the BBC must obtain your permission before using your music are listed in the BBC Prior Approval summary table. For more information about prior approval, please read the BBC Prior Approval FAQs.
