COVID-19 MEASURES

OFFICES & PUBLIC COUNTERS
Further to the policy of HM Government of Gibraltar to increase social distancing and slow the spread of COVID-19, attendance at our offices and public counters is possible by prior appointment only. Although we aim to carry out all our regulatory duties electronically, we do understand that this may not be possible for everyone. In such cases, an appointment will be arranged. Please note that a face mask is compulsory when attending our public counter.

Please contact our offices by e-mailing info@gra.gi or call us on 200 74636. If you are unable to speak to our front desk staff, please leave a voicemail message. These are checked very regularly, and a member of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

LICENCES
We accept requests for licence applications and renewals by e-mail, together with any necessary licence variations, if applicable. Payment for these may be effected, preferably, by bank transfer. If this is not possible, card payment via the telephone will also be accepted. Please contact our offices on licensing@gra.gi and a member of our team will direct you to the correct application form on our website. If a paper copy is required, this may also be arranged by calling us on 200 74636. Licences will be scanned and sent by e-mail together with a copy of the receipt. The originals can either be posted or can be held for collection at a prearranged date and time.

Please note that a face mask is compulsory when attending our public counter.

Collective Management of Copyright Regulations 2016

On the 12th May 2016, the Collective Management of Copyright Regulations 2016 were published transposing the requirements of Directive 2014/26/EU on the collective management of copyright.

The legislation implements standards in the operation of collective management organisations and independent management entities and introduces a framework for the supply of multi-territorial licences for online musical works.

Under these regulations, a "collective management organisation" means an organisation which:

"(a) is authorised by law or by way of assignment, licence or any other contractual arrangement to manage copyright or rights related to copyright on behalf of more than one right holder, for the collective benefit of those right holders, as its sole or main purpose; and

(b) is either owned or controlled by its members or is organized on a not for profit basis or both;"

An "independent management entity" means an organisation which:

"(a) is authorised by law or by way of assignment, licence or any other contractual arrangement to manage copyright or rights related to copyright on behalf of more than one right holder, for the collective benefit of those right holders, as its sole or main purpose;

(b) is neither owned nor controlled, directly or indirectly, wholly or in part, by right holders; and

(c) is organised on a for profit basis;"

The GRA is responsible for monitoring compliance and ensuring that procedures exist enabling the relevant persons to notify it of activities or circumstances which constitute a breach of these regulations.

Collective Management Organisations or Independent Management Entities established in Gibraltar should therefore contact our offices at the above address or directly via email, broadcasting@gra.gi
