  • End of Reporting Period

    The July to December reporting period is about to close. Organisations have until 30 January 2019 to enter their data for this period. We encourage organisations to ensure they have made plans to meet the reporting cut-off date. Once the reporting period closes, organisations are unable to submit their data without the approval of a system re-opening request.
