The UK's national infrastructure will be "named and shamed" this summer if they have not completed adequate steps to becoming Y2K compliant.
Action 2000, the government funded organisation set up to educate businesses about the millennium bug, said that it is pushing for all regulatory bodies within the national infrastructure to disclose their Y2K compliancy on 12 July. This will include local government and the national health service.
It comes as the latest "State of the Nation" update which maintains that businesses are getting their heads around the millennium bug, but many have not put contingency plans in place.
The report said that 82% of large companies had checked that the millennium bug would not disrupt their business. A quarter, however, have not made plans to deal with a break down in their supply chain with other companies due to the bug. (see earlier story)
