The phrase 'Pre-release Access' refers to the practice whereby official statistics in their final form, and any accompanying written commentary, are made available to an eligible person in advance of their publication.
The rules and principles which govern pre-release access are featured within the Pre-release Access to Official Statistics Order 2008.
Where pre-release access has been granted to ONS statistics, a list of those individuals who receive access by job title, duration and organisation for statistics published before August 2011 is linked below.
Pre-release access information for those statistics published after August 2011 will be listed within the Statistical release page for that particular release. In the future all ONS pre-release lists will be published this way.
