December 2021: Update
Some minor changes have been introduced to help ensure that the quality of data captured by the upload portal is maintained. Whilst all of the information requested is relevant and useful, not all of it is relevant in all cases. However, some data fields are relevant in every case and those that are considered to be of critical importance are now indicated by a red asterisk ‘ * ’.
Your homepage now provides a reminder of how many of your cases are missing some of this critical information and an additional search function to help you to locate those cases. Links have also been added for a user guide and introduction video, both of which will be available in January 2022.
July 2021: Update
The Fire & Flood Database (FFDB) was previously referred to as the Large Loss Database (or LLDB) but was renamed in 2021 to reflect an increase in its scope to incorporate significant flood related losses. This upload portal is used exclusively for entering case data for fire and flood events. A sister site (located here) has now been produced which allows information to be extracted from the database and analysed using a provided spreadsheet template.
