This Technical Release has been produced to expand upon the guidance given in TECH04/16BL. Nothing included in TECH04/16BL has become inappropriate, but further discussions with the Registrar have clarified some of the provisions of the legislation and their interpretation. For this reason, TECH04/16BL has been withdrawn with immediate effect and replaced with TECH01/17BL.
