To enable us to focus on important development work, the Data Linkage Branch is not actively processing new applications or new project work from the 9th of December 2019 until the 6th of January 2020.

This means the last Data Custodian draft application review meeting for 2019 will be held on the 5th December 2019. The first draft application review meeting for next year will be held on Thursday the 16th January 2020.

DLB will continue to progress existing applications and projects during the close down period. A number of staff will also be on leave during the Christmas period, which might impact project timelines.
