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.

How does Reprobel distribute the remuneration for reprography?

The remuneration for reprography is distributed in equal parts among authors and publishers. The legislators defined the distribution ratio in the Copyright Act. At Reprobel it is the Authors' College and the Publishers' College who are in charge of the distribution of the remunerations. Each College takes care of the distribution of the portion owed to its rights holders according to the different categories of works (authors) and of publications (publishers) and according to their own distribution ratios.
