Further information to help you access SDCS
The maximum number of registered data submitters per data collection, per organisation is 2. For some collections, the limit may be different due to collection specific requirements.
To access SDCS, you must have a valid SSO account. These accounts can only be registered to an individual's work email address (for example, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org). We will not accept generic, team or shared email addresses or personal private email addresses (for example, email@example.com).
To participate in any SDCS data collection, your organisation will require an ODS Code. You can check if your organisation already has an ODS code on the ODS website. If your organisation does not have an ODS code, you will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an ‘ODS Code Request Form’.
Once access has been granted, you will receive an automated confirmation email. You will also need to register your SSO if you do not already have one. Register your SSO account.
