More than four months after the end of the Paralympics, the ban on suppliers publicising their involvement with the London Olympics has been lifted.

Very few contributors to the success of the Olympics were able to benefit from publicity.

Following the payment of £2 million by the British Government to the British Olympic Association, designers, suppliers and other involved in London 2012 are able to apply to become part of the official Supplier Recognition Scheme. This will allow them to publicise the work that they did without fear of penalties.

The publicity ban was highly criticised, and led to a protest started by architectural marketing expert Peter Murray and pursued vigorously by the RIBA, with other organisations lending support.
