Data Processing Times

We process huge volumes of invaluable data which is submitted by you, our contributors. Whilst we try to ensure that we process submissions as soon as possible, we also apply levels of prioritization against different data to ensure that we get the highest profile data types for the most viewed pages to the site as quickly as possible to ensure the best possible user experience.

Page updated 6 July 2015 using data from 5 July 2015.

The number of unprocessed items against each data type is in the table below.
This is intended to provide our contributors with a processing overview of every data type.

Unprocessed items within SLA: 99.62%. Unprocessed items outside SLA: 0.38% = 142 items.

We do apologize if any backlog affects submissions that you have made and will endeavor to clear the backlogs as soon as possible.

Please note the date given for the oldest item does not mean that no submissions have been processed since that date for that particular data type.
