  • Co-producers shall not be linked by common management, ownership or control, save to the extent that it is inherent in the making of the co-production film itself.
  • The film-making contribution benefiting a country shall be broadly in proportion to the financial contribution of the party co-producer(s).
  • No more than 20% of the total production cost may be used to source goods and services from a country other than the UK, the Occupied Palestinian Territories, an EEA State, or the State in which the third party co-producer is established.
  • Unless the competent authorities agree otherwise, at least 90% of footage must have been specially shot for that film.
  • Unless the competent authorities agree otherwise, all work on the co-production prior to completion shall be carried out in the UK, the Occupied Palestinian Territories or in the country in which the Third-Party Co-producers are established and the majority of the work including studio and post-production work shall be carried out in the country in which the party co-producer or third party co-producer making the greatest financial contribution is established. Exceptions may be permitted if the script or the circumstances require it, and the Competent Authorities agree.
  • Individuals participating in the making of the film shall be nationals of/ordinarly residents in the UK, the Occupied Palestinian Territories, an EEA State, or the State in which the third-party co-producer is established, unless the competent authorities agree otherwise.
