Disruption to Signet services

On 20th January there was at small fire at AHDB HQ, where Signet is based.

No one was injured by the fire, but there is a lot of smoke damage and as a result Signet staff are currently working remotely.

The Signet Database is still up and running and data can continue to be submitted.

Please contact us by email with any query - as our phone lines are mostly just picking up messages or being diverted.
