Data submission

BEEDS Portal update – July 2023

In order to improve performance the BEEDS Portal has been updated with a number of fixes, which have been released and tested successfully. The biggest change on the BEEDS Portal side should be; an improvement in stability and speed in using the site, a reduced amount of “stuck in processing” returns, as well as a fix to the passwords and text boxes around the site which wouldn’t accept certain special characters. The error preventing users from accessing the Help & Guidance section has also been rectified.

This follows on from our previous update which aimed to simplify the user journey within BEEDS. As we aim to keep improving BEEDS, one way we can do this is by knowing your opinion! Please give us your feedback at
