  • Disposition Summary:

    Clarify meaning of national extension character

    The current 'use' attribute corresponds to a flag indicating that the third set of 10 characters reserved for national extensions to APP6-C is to be used (i.e. characters 21 to 30 of the Symbol Identification Code (SIDC)).
    Accordingly this should be renamed to 'useNationalExtension'.
    The documentation for the attribute should also be extended to state that it relates to the national extension attributes
    The type should be Boolean
