Further information and queries
A comprehensive programme of communications and engagements will be delivered throughout 2022 to support industry in preparing for and adjusting to SIRE 2.0, and further information will be shared as appropriate. Background information on SIRE 2.0 can be found on OCIMF’s website, here, which also includes an updated Frequently Asked Questions section.
