New Licences

Obligations for Licence Data at the Time of Initial Licence Award

Companies entering into new licence agreements do not take on any obligations with respect to Licence Data that was associated with previous (surrendered) licences that happen to coincide geographically within the area of the new licence.

The companies that held the surrendered licence in question are not released from their obligations to DECC even if they have come to an arrangement with the licence group (or members thereof) that enter into a new licence agreement over the same area (unless DECC also explicitly agrees in writing to this arrangement).
