Hello everyone, 

With only 10 working days left before Christmas, it’s not time for a glass of brandy and a mince pie just yet—there’s still lots to be done. 

Testing activity is still ramping up which is very encouraging, although am still concerned by those of you who haven’t yet engaged with us. The preparatory work needed for OTS which we point in our ‘getting for OTS checklist’ and subsequently the testing of the TOTSCo Hub does take time and resource. I encourage everyone to get started as soon as you can. If you need support we are here. 

Thank you to those who have already signed the User Agreement. For those who are yet to complete the commercial onboarding, I encourage you to proceed with the process to sign the User Agreement. Thank you in advance. 

Next week, on the 14th of December, marks the final Stakeholder Forum of the year. We’ll be presenting the industry trials approach (released as a consultation bulletin next week), discussing simulator and integration testing prerequisites, sharing updates on onboarding and testing, and introducing a special guest for our ‘voice of industry’ segment—details to be announced soon. If you’d like an invitation, please email us 

Finally, in case you missed our email invite, our first AGM is scheduled to be held via Teams on 18 December. This meeting offers an opportunity for company Members and OTS stakeholders to engage with our Chair, Board of Directors, and key TOTSCo Executives. Discussions will revolve around the organization’s performance and governance. You’re most welcome to join us. Simply reach out via email to confirm your attendance. 

That’s all from me this week folks, I look forward to seeing you all next week at our Stakeholder Forum with your Christmas Jumper on!  

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. 

Warm regards, 

Paul Bradbury
