Update of WCIS Status

The WCIS system is now up-to-date in terms of receiving data from trading partners. The software bug that caused the recent problem with acknowledgements has been fixed. WCIS has begun sending acknowledgements on the backlog of data. We anticipate that it will take approximately seven working days to complete the processing of backlogged data. We will send another e-News to trading partners when all of the backlogged data and acknowledgements have been processed.
