CDS APPLICABLE DATE is the date (with an associated CDS APPLICABLE TIME) of the update event (or the nearest equivalent) that resulted in the need to exchange this Commissioning Data Set.
CDS APPLICABLE DATE is mandatory when used with the Commissioning Data Set Net Change Update Mechanism. It is not required when the Commissioning Data Set Bulk Replacement Update Mechanism is used. See the Commissioning Data Set Submission Protocol.
The CDS APPLICABLE DATE (and the CDS APPLICABLE TIME if supplied) is stored in the Secondary Uses Service database and in the event of multiple submissions of the same uniquely identified Commissioning data (even in separate interchanges).
The Secondary Uses Service database update process is then able to use this date and time to ensure correct updating of the Commissioning data in the correct relative date/time sequence.
This data element is also known by these names:
