Attention: the legislation with regard to reprography and education has recently been changed. The information on this website pertaining to reprography fees on the Belgian territory only remains valid for photocopies made (operator fee) and for acts of import (equipment levy on reproduction devices) before 1 January 2017. The other information on the website (with regard to, e.g., the company, its financial results and public lending right) remains valid. Reprobel’s public website will be updated as soon as possible in line with the new legislation.


In consultation with the government, Reprobel has created an explanatory brochure on the Copyright Act of 30 June 1994 and on the remuneration to authors and publishers for copies of protected works made for private or didactic use.

Note: this Explanatory brochure dates from 1998 and not all of its information is up-to-date.
