Please note the following times/dates relating to Rating Office Christmas closure, and the issue of rating certificates:

1200-1700 GMT Tuesday 21st December - the office will be closed as we have our office Christmas lunch (and it's not a good idea to run ratings after that!)

1700 GMT, Wednesday 22 December - we will not be able to run any IRC certificates after this date, until Monday 4th January.  This is because we have to do end of year maintenance, back up and data transfers etc.

1700 GMT Thursday 23 December - the Rating Office closes for Christmas and the New Year.

0900 GMT Tuesday 4 January 2011 - the Rating Office re-opens for business.

Please note that the 2011 IRC program will be operational from January.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas, and a happy and successful 2011 season.
