Oil Market Report Terms and Conditions

The Oil Market Report (OMR) is published once a month. Other oil market information (for example, the Medium-Term Oil Market Report, the Annual Statistical Supplementand other information relating to the Oil Market Report that a user may access via the International Energy Agency’s [IEA] OMR website) is published less frequently. For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, the Oil Market Report and such other oil market analyses, supplements and other information are referred to as the ‘OMR Material’.

For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions ‘Subscriber’ means the individual or organisation that has purchased a subscription from the IEA and the term ‘User’ means any individual user who is an employee of Subscriber or an individual performing the functions of an employee on a temporary basis, independent contractor or consultant who is performing work solely for the subscriber and who accesses any OMR Material.

Initially, OMR Material is only available to the users designated by a Subscriber, certain members of IEA Member country governments and other IEA-authorised recipients (‘Authorised Users’). This is known as the ‘Subscriber Edition’. In some cases a person will be a Subscriber, User and an Authorised User.

The restrictions that apply to the use of the Subscriber Edition are set out in Section C below. Many of these restrictions are lifted when OMR Material is made available free on the IEA OMR public website. It is then known as the ‘Free Edition’. The restrictions which apply to the use of the Free Edition are set out in Section B below. Some information in the Subscriber Edition may be excluded from the Free Edition. The period between release of the Subscriber Edition and publication of the Free Edition may vary.

A.        General terms and conditions of use for all Users (Subscriber Edition and Free Edition)
