25.6: Protocol 000001 – blood component dispatch information

Update Notice: Chapter 25 - Tables 25.5 has been updated following the issue of Change Notification 29 - 2015

Two data line structures are defined within this protocol. The first is a single line containing administrative information (order no., dispatch no.), and the second is a multiple occurrence line with an entry for each item on the dispatch. To distinguish between the two line types, a line type indicator is included as the first field following the line number (see Tables 25.3 to 25.6).
