    System outage information

    Daily maintenance windows

    We implement critical updates during standard daily maintenance windows (see below table). This work is conducted outside of core business hours to minimise disruption, during these windows you may not be able to access our systems.

    Planned outages

    We may require a system outage that falls outside of the daily maintenance window, or to a system where there is no daily maintenance window. This is a planned outage and details of these will be communicated in advance on our Live updates webpage and also detailed below.

    Known issues

    If we are working to resolve a problem with any of our systems, regular updates will be provided on our Live updates webpage.
