Back  RFI # 701: BPR11 without BPR10

Formal vs. Informal Help Informal Formal


Julia Dunicheva


Is is compliant with the implementation guide to use element BPR11 without valued element BPR10 in 835 transaction?
Element BPR10 is said to be a payer ID, and BPR11 is said to be an additional payer ID and it's required to be used when BPR10 is not enough. But can it be use standalone ?


This issue is explicitly addressed in guide 004010X091. The name of element BPR10 is Originating Company Identifier. The Name of element BPR11 is Originating Company Supplemental Identifier. Both state that they are used for identifying the entity initiating the transfer. As such, sending BPR11 without sending BPR10 can not meet the business function of identifying the entity initiating the transfer. Sending BPR11 without sending BPR10 is by definition inadequate to the business needs. BPR11 can not stand alone.
