NOTICE to TRACES users

The TRACES system migrates to the new TRACES-NT system. However, the transition period has been extended to the end of January 2020, possibly beyond. At this time, both systems, TRACES classic ("old" TRACES) and TRACES-NT are operating in parallel. If possible, use TRACES-NT to familiarize yourself with its use. If there are too many obstacles, you can also use the "old" TRACES system.
