This week we have seen lots more of you successfully go through testing in our hub simulator and I am delighted that we are pairing up CPs/MAPS ready for OTS integration testing. For those of you unsure of how to test your systems and processes with our hub, we have created a dedicated testing page on our website. We will also be holding some ‘testing information’ sessions so you can come along and ask any questions you may have. More information on these soon.

Don’t forget, to start testing, you need to onboard with us. It’s a simple two step process, you can read more here. This applies to those of you already using or consider using a managed access provider.  You can find more detailed information on our dedicated ‘onboarding’ page on our website.

Our draft User Agreement and Schedules are now published, I would like to encourage you all to review them and send your feedback to us by 15 September. We look forward to hearing your comments.

This week, we are delighted to welcome two new independent non-executive directors to our board: Shrinivas Honap and Joanne Prowse. Both Shrinivas and Joanne bring a wealth of valuable experience that will greatly contribute to the effective governance, strategic direction, and long-term success of TOTSCo. I look forward to working alongside them both.

As I mentioned last week, I’d like to remind those of you who have been waiting for mTLS and API key authentication protocols (which will be available in all our testing environments from October 20th) that starting from mid-September, we’re offering you an early opportunity to test these protocols in User Acceptance Testing. If you’d like to participate and get an early look at the platforms, please feel free to get in touch.

That’s it from me for this week.

Enjoy the weekend an the last of the sunshine!

All the best

Paul
