MBORC Declaration - Update


Posted on: Friday 17 June 2016, 14:29

We have received communications from our suppliers regarding the MBORC (Matters Beyond Our Reasonable Control) declaration for some areas of the country. Please find the information regarding this below:

"Parts of the UK experienced severe weather last week, including lightning strikes, heavy rain and flooding. This caused serious impacts to Openreach infrastructure, with damage both above and below ground, and fault intake in affected areas at extremely high levels.

Openreach therefore declared MBORC for repair activities in two areas, with effect from 23:59 on 10 June 2016:

Due to the prevailing conditions, Openreach is now declaring MBORC for repair activities in a further area, with effect from 23:59 13 June 2016:


MBORC MB17460 for repair activities remains in place in the following areas:

St Albans

We've been taking steps, including directing additional engineers into these areas, to bring the position back to normal as quickly as we possibly can and we are now able to remove MBORC from the following area, with effect from 23:59 16 June 2016:

Thames North

We'll continue to monitor the situation in these areas and in a number of other affected areas.

We'll remove MBORC as soon as service can be restored to the levels they were at immediately before the severe weather."

Kind Regards
