Revised guidance documents

Updated versions of the “Service type matrix” (Appendix A) and “Program activity guidance” (Appendix B) are now available via the Policy/Guidance tab. Please click on the Data Exchange Protocols link to access these documents.

Changes include  the adding of new program activities, and the adding or removing of service types for some activities. We have also provided advance notification of future changes to service types (to take effect from August 2018) in order to allow time for organisations that use XML bulk upload, or system-to-system transfer methods to modify their upload coding, if required.
