Browser upgrades

Help with PDF files

PDF stands for Portable Document Format. It is a universal file format that displays the fonts, images, graphics and layout of a document, regardless of the application and platform used to create it. In order to view and print a PDF document, you will need to download the free PDF viewer from the Adobe website. Most computers come with the free Adobe Reader ® software as standard.

We are continually working to improve the accessibility and usability of our content but if you are experiencing any difficulties downloading files or accessing a particular page please contact us.
