We would also like to receive the data as an Excel/CSV file.”

 

Response:

Please note that Devon County Council (DCC) is not an enforcing authority for commercial entities under RIDDOR, and as such does not hold the requested information.  This is a function of district, city and borough councils, so we would suggest that you re-direct your request to these councils, contact details for which can be accessed on our website here
