Whiplash reforms: How’s it going and what’s next?!

It’s been two weeks since the OIC portal went live and six weeks since I started in my new post as Head of Market Affairs at Keoghs and while Keoghs is fresh and new for me I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling like we’ve been talking about the whiplash reforms forever – the past five and a half years in fact!  With three delays to the originally intended launch date, there is much relief that we can finally stop talking about whether the reforms will happen at all.  Conversation has now inevitably turned to what comes next.  Will the technology hold up?
