1. The Service

The FRAPA Analysis Service (hereinafter referred to as “The FAS”) is a service offered by FRAPA to compare two formats and analyse the similarities and differences independently according to the FAS methodology. The correspondence throughout the process is strictly confidential.  Only broadcasted formats can be analysed.


  1. General

Use of The FAS is at your sole responsibility. The FAS is not a substitute for legal advice, but could be used as a potential  and supportive aid for legal protection.


FRAPA is headquartered in the Netherlands and therefore subject to Dutch law. If this service is accessed from a location outside of the Netherlands, you are responsible for complying with local laws.

All those involved in conducting the analysis have signed a non-disclosure agreement stating they are not in any way permitted to comment or provide information regarding the content of the analysis to individuals other than the person or company who has requested the service.

All the persons involved in conducting the service need to confirm upfront that there are no conflicting interests whatsoever.


  1. The Service

The FAS is available for members only. More information can be found at the FRAPA website (www.frapa.org). As soon as we have received the intake form we will review it. After reviewing the form FRAPA decides if there is substantial ground for running an analysis.

If FRAPA decides to do the analysis, FRAPA must be provided with at least two episodes of the how in order to conduct a reasonable analysis. We will attempt to provide you with an analysis report within 3 weeks of receiving your intake form. If this is not possible for any reason, we will inform you within 3 weeks.


  1. Use of The Service

All the documents which are the result of the analysis are the exclusive properties of FRAPA.

All written or recorded document we provide can be used by the member for internal or legal purposes only. The analysis may be used in court or in official mediation. If a member wishes to use the documents for PR purposes they would need A FRAPA written approval of the press or any other public statement, up front to avoid any misquotations.


  1. Payment

The fee for every analysis is a flat rate which you can find at our website. This service is exempt from VAT. If however the Tax Authority in the Netherlands decides it should be or have been invoiced with VAT FRAPA can ask you to pay the VAT that had to be charged.  FRAPA will only start the analysis after receiving the payment including bank or transfer costst.



FRAPA cannot be held responsible for whatever form of damage to individuals, goods or services.  You are deemed solely responsible for your use of the FAS.
