Document content:

Before applying for a PPMS user account, all potential external cleanroom users must complete the process to become an LCN Visitor.
The website has the links you need to do this. LCN Visitors will be issued with card access to the LCN building and with UCL credentials. If you have not completed this process, please exit this application and reapply when you have UCL Credentials.
Take care not to create a duplicate PPMS user account if you have had one already, or in the past.
