Licensing of CIBSE Knowledge content

If you are producing a non-CIBSE publication and would like to reproduce text, images or diagrams that initially appeared in a CIBSE Knowledge output, you must obtain our permission. Please do so using this form:

CIBSE Knowledge Permission Request Form

Your responses will be forwarded to the CIBSE Knowledge team to assess your request, and we will aim to be in touch with a quote within five working days.

If you do not intend to publish your final work - for example, if it is a dissertation or thesis that will be submitted academically but not published - you do not need to request permission. Simply acknowledge your use of all CIBSE content by listing the publication title and relevant page numbers followed by (CIBSE, year of publication), as below:

Extract taken from TM40: Health and wellbeing in building services, pages 111-114 (CIBSE, 2020).

Please also include the publication details in your reference list, listing CIBSE as both author and publisher. For example:

CIBSE (2020) Health and wellbeing in building services  CIBSE TM40 (London: Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers)
