Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal

Submitter

Todd Cochrane

Description

Should the GS06/GE02 (Data Element 28, Group Control Number) be incremented for multiple GS/GE segments within the same ISA/IEA envelope?

Response

Your request for interpretation with regard to the GS/GE group control number provoked concern for uniqueness in a broader sense. Accordingly, a project proposal entitled Uniqueness in EDI Transmissions was initiated within X12C Communications and Controls Subcommittee.

Recommendation

The official response to a formal RFI is a letter from the current ASC X12 chair. This website often displays a summary of the RFI. Click here to view a PDF of the letter for this RFI.
