In the ISA15, of 997 version 5010X230, a new code value has been added. The definition of this new code value "I" is Information. Can you please provide some insight into the purpose of this new code value, and in what situation it might be used. Thanks very much for your assistance.


The stated 'I' is for informational purposes. The intent when using the code ‘I’, in effect is to send a carbon copy of the interchange. When sent the informational interchange processing is at the receiver’s discretion.
