Latest VERSION

 
 
 

TABLES and TEMPLATES extracted from the Manual on Codes, Volume I.2

Valid: 6 November 2019

NOTES:
(1)     The latest versions of GRIB (24.0.0) and of BUFR and CREX (33.0.0), are effective as from 6 November 2019.

          The version number may consist of three parts: FORMAL (operational updates), SUB-1 (pre-operational
          updates) and SUB-2 (others, such as editorial corrections) numbers, delimited by a full stop ".".

(2)      TABLES and TEMPLATES (docx, pdf) in the Latest column may contain operational and pre-operational 
          (in Italic) entries, both of which could be used in operational data and products.

(3)      Entries under validation and validation complete but waiting for the effective date are shown in the Non-
          operational column separately (docx, pdf).  Please note that non-operational entries may not be used
          in operational data and products, and validation entries may be modified during validation process.

(4)      txt/xml (zip) files in the Latest column contain operational and pre-operational entries of GRIB, BUFR,
          CREX and common code tables. These could be incorporated in operational encoders/decoders.

(5)      text/xml (zip) files in the Non-operational column contain operational, pre-operational and non-operational
          entries, which are specifically made for validation purposes and may assist checking integrity of new
          entries to be proposed.

(6)      Machine readable tables with the element description column are provided experimentally for GRIB Code/
          Flag tables and BUFR/CREX Table B.
