10 CFR 1303.109 - Restrictions on charging fees.
(a) When determining search or review fees:
(1) No search or review fee shall be charged for requests by educational institutions, noncommercial scientific institutions, and representatives of the news media.
(2) The Board shall provide without charge, to all but commercial users.
(i) The first 100 pages of black and white duplication (or the cost equivalent); and
(ii) The first two hours of search by a clerical staff member (or the cost equivalent).
(3) When the total fee for a request will be $14.00 or less for any request, no fee shall be charged.
(b) The Provisions of paragraphs (a)(2) and (a)(3) of this section work together. All requestors seeking records for a non-commercial use shall not be charged unless the total cost for the request exceeds by more than $14.00, the cost of a two hour clerical search, plus the cost of duplication over the 100 page exemption.
