Important: Upgrading of Mandatory Reporting Information Systems

Thursday, 23 July, 2020
The Department of Communities is upgrading the Mandatory Reporting Information System. The new system will come online and be available for use from 12:00pm on Saturday 25th July 2020.
The new Mandatory Reporting Information System will have an updated look and be easier to use,  particularly when entering information into fields and navigating between screens in the system. The format and order in which information is entered will be slightly different to the existing system, and there will be new questions incorporated into the system that will assist to provide more focussed, relevant and detailed information to the Mandatory Reporting Service.  There will be detailed user guides embedded into the system to assist and guide in the use of the system when making the Mandatory Report. 
Additionally, unlike the old system, the new system can be used in any browser, including Internet Explorer or Chrome, and there is no longer the restriction preventing use of the system in Internet Explorer. 
The new system can be accessed through the same link in the Mandatory Reporting website.   
Note.  If you have bookmarked the old system, please delete that bookmark and do not rely on it from Saturday 25/07/2020 onwards.
Please note that the current system will go offline and will not be available from Saturday 25th July 2020 at 8:00AM. If a report needs to be submitted to the Mandatory Reporting Service during Saturday, between 8:00AM and 12:00PM, please download and complete the PDF of the Mandatory Reporting form that’s available in the Make a Report area of the Mandatory Reporting website.  The completed form can be emailed to the Mandatory Reporting Service at
