How to perform an advanced search

You must decide whether you wish to find All NoticesImprovement Notices or Prohibition Notices.

Next steps will differ dependant upon which option you choose. If you choose All Notices you will  be presented with a list of search items. If you selectImprovement or Prohibition notices, a set of sub-types will be presented to further refine the search, if required. The set of options provided will depend on the type of Notice selected.

After selecting and entering the search criteria, the next step is to decide whether to select 'Go' (to see results so far) or 'Continue' (to add another criteria).

To combine search criteria, you will use "AND", "OR" and "NOT"  Conditions. When dealing with Dates (e.g. Compliance Date), you will use "<"," >" and "=" Operands.
