The IOC will directly grant ENR accreditation to a limited number of radio and television organisations who do not own rights to broadcast the Olympic Games (herein referred to as non- rights holders).  Applications will be available between 8 October and 16 November 2012

Due to the limited number of accreditations available in this category, application deadlines will be strictly observed.  ENR accreditations are directly allocated by the IOC and are not included in the NOC quotas.

This accreditation category gives restricted access (all competition venues, without equipment, and access to the Main Press Centre with equipment) as defined in the IOC News Access Rules.
