Important Information

From the 1 January 2017, the Naming and Approvals Committee (NAC) intends to remove any link to the MIAP domain. Web Service Users, organisations who access LRS via their own MI system, will see an error if the organisation is still using the old domain. Please take immediate action and replace the MIAP domain with a non-MIAP URL. For more information go to LRS: replacement of the MIAP domain (August 2016).
