Does anyone know why it's been ages and ages since any Warner singles or albums were awarded new accreditations? Has Warner stopped working with ARIA for sales awards?
There's been loads of single and a few albums that I would've expected to see an accreditation for by now, but haven't -- prime example is everything by Dua Lipa after "Don't Start Now", amongst many others. Given that a single can seemingly be awarded platinum+ from having barely touched the Top 100, it's improbable that Dua Lipa's last three singles at least haven't reached the required threshold.
Anyone know anything about this?

Ever since Warner was merged in the Inertia Record Label, their staff has been reduced to minimal, compared to their former glory.
I suspect there isn't a dedicated certifier at Warner Australia anymore, but feel free to let them know what needs to be certified by contacting Inertia, maybe they just need to be prodded into action.
Thanks. I'll give them a go. I see the merger happened in late 2018, but the lack of certifications has only been evident (at least for the Warner label) since mid-last year - 25 WAR / 3 INE from 464 certifications May '20 - February '21, so curious to see what (if anything) they come back with.
