Service status

The service status is manually updated when there are Issues or Planned Maintenance which may affect Sam and/or the Government Gateway.

Sam has been updated to reflect the introduction of the TB181 where reactors or inconclusive reactors are identified. You must record your actions using the appropriate selections on the summary and sign-off tab and now refrain from detailing these in the comments box. Further guidance is available in Section 17 of the Sam OV practical guide
