Data Processing Times

We process huge volumes of invaluable data which is submitted by you, our contributors.

    The number of unprocessed items against each list is in the table below. This is intended to provide our contributors with a processing overview of every list. Please see the SLAs above which will indicate whether or not a list is failing its SLA. We do apologize if any backlog affects submissions that you have made and will endeavor to clear the backlogs as soon as possible.

    New Events: We have re-opened New Events submissions - see relevant thread.
    There is currently a backlog of new events to process going back to August 2013. Please bear with us as we work through this.

    NAKAs: NAKA data is awaiting migration to a new system and is not currently being processed (backlog dates to April 2012).

    Please note that this does not mean that the lists here are failing their Service Level Agreement. Likewise, the date given for the oldest item does not mean that no submissions have been processed since that date for that particular list.
