Update on the improved WCIS system

Update on the Improved WCIS SystemRequests by Trading Partners to implement additional changes in processing rules for the improved WCIS system resulted in additional code modifications. As every change is subject to testing and verification, the Division of Workers Compensation (DWC) has extended the cutover date for deploying the improved WCIS system to February 27, 2004. As previously noted, this switch will be transparent to the Trading Partners.
