The LSBUD Search API



Did you know that some of the heaviest Users of LSBUD are now using our Search API to order their vital LSBUD searches?

Avoiding Damage to underground & overhead utility assets

The LSBUD Search API has been developed to reduce the reliance on a manual ordering process and to help LSBUD Users who make a lot of search requests to enjoy benefits such as:

  • Instant automated search requests to more than 150 UK asset owners
  • Accurate search submission, directly from their own systems
  • Guaranteed accuracy on search resubmissions – with no human error such as typing mistakes
  • Reduced time spent manually ordering searches, enabling staff to focus on other activities

The LSBUD Search API is a commercial service. Fees are charged per search placed and will vary based on the User’s anticipated usage of the service. In the first instance this will be agreed with the User and based on the User’s search volumes in the previous year. A formal commercial proposal will be provided.

If you would like to try the LSBUD Search API, please contact us at We will then provide you with a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). Upon completion we will provide our LSBUD Search API User Guide which provides step-by-step instructions on how to access, set-up and use the free test environment.

You can fully test the service works for you, free of charge, with the support of our talented technical team before committing to anything further.

If a commercial search API is not for you then please don’t worry. Usual manual use of LSBUD will always be free of charge.
