Amnesty Period

Please note there will be an “amnesty” period of 2 months for sessions already agreed under the old rates: Any session already organised under the terms of the old 2011 Agreement and due to take place prior to 1 March 2019 will be allowed to go ahead at the old rate.

All sessions entered into under the new 2019 BPI & MU Agreement or which are due to take place on or after 1 March 2019 will be subject to the new 2019 BPI & MU Agreement terms & rates.

New Session Forms

In order to comply with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), which came into force earlier this year, it has been necessary to re-design both the BPI Session Agreement form and the BPI Live Recording Agreement form.

Under the GDPR any consent you give to the processing of your personal data has to be specific, separate from other terms and conditions, and located close to the signature field. In order to comply with these requirements an additional field, entitled “Data Protection” has been added to both forms, detailing who your personal data will be processed by and why.

Examples of both new forms are attached for your reference and will be available on the main “BPI Agreements” page of the website in January 2019.
