This ‘beta’ label means you’re looking at the first version of a new service or web page.
We regularly launch new or redesigned websites. During the beta phase, these sites are continually tested and improved.
The beta label is displayed on a new website to show it’s being tested – it may not work for everyone or may include sections with limited content.
Redesigned websites should be easier to use than the ones they replace.
Sometimes a beta website will be available at the same time as an older, existing website – you can choose which one to use.
Successful beta websites eventually become ‘live’ and replace any older version that perform the same task.
Beta content on this new website follows the same rules for accessibility and privacy as existing content.
