The Welsh Revenue Authority (WRA) is named in The Official Statistics (Wales) Order 2017 as a body that produces official statistics, as defined by the Statistics and Registration Services Act 2007.

The Head of Data Analysis for the WRA grants pre-release access to WRA statistics.

1. Who has pre-release access to statistics in their final form

Pre-release access provides access to statistics in their final form before they are published. The rules governing who and why pre-release access is granted are set out in The Pre-release Access to Official Statistics (Wales) Order 2009.

Each of the recipients named on the pre-release access list signs a declaration confirming:

  • they require access for their official functions
  • they will comply to the conditions of pre-release access

Pre-release access to WRA statistics is provided 24 hours before the statistics are made publicly available.

2. Who has pre-release access for production purposes

Pre-release access is also given to a small number of people who are involved in producing the statistical publication. This includes:

  • WRA statisticians
  • translators
  • secretaries (who have access to a mailbox of a recipient listed below)
  • web publishing teams

Those who receive access for production purposes sign similar declarations, but they are not included on the list below.

3. List of positions with pre-release access to WRA statistics

We publish and regularly update the following list of positions which have pre-release access to WRA statistics. This is in line with the Code of Practice for Statistics.

The pre-release access list for earlier statistical releases is available on request.
