Here’s some information to help you read and understand how we use the Official list.

This important and unique document is the best way we have found to provide participants, and followers with the required information and to ensure also total transparency to meet local authorities’ requests.

We try to report any changes within 24 hours of notification but can take longer.
Columns are toggled throughout the year depending on the requirements at the time.
