Submit a dataset

Please send your dataset(s) to data@nbn.org.uk by the deadlines listed above. We have guidance and templates for submitting datasets to the NBN Atlas and if you have any questions please contact data@nbn.org.uk.

We accept unformatted records, however there may be a delay in the records being ready for upload, depending on the amount of formatting required.
