TRADING PARTNER AGREEMENT (Continued)

 

2.3 Functional Acknowledgement and Response Document

 

2.3.1 For the purposes of this Agreement, a "Functional Acknowledgment" means an

ASC X12 Transaction Set 997 which confirms a Document has been received and whether all

required portions of the Document are syntactically correct or not, but which does not

confirm the substantive content(s) of the related Document.

 

2.3.2 If the Functional Acknowledgment indicates an error, neither party shall

rely on the Document. The sending party shall attempt to correct the error and promptly

retransmit the Document or otherwise contact the receiving party. If the Functional

Acknowledgment does not indicate any error, the Functional Acknowledgment shall

constitute conclusive evidence a Document has been received in syntactically correct

form.

 

2.3.3 If there has been proper receipt pursuant to Section 2.1, verification and

successful decryption pursuant to Section 2.2, and if the receiving party nevertheless

fails to transmit a Functional Acknowledgement, the sending party's records of the

contents of the Document shall control, unless the sending party has retransmitted a

Document pursuant to Section 2.3.7.

 

2.3.4 By mutual agreement, the parties may designate in the Exhibit(s) a

"Response Document" Transaction Set as a substitute for or in addition to an ASC X12

Transaction Set 997. A Response Document confirms that a Document has been received,

and whether all required portions of the Document are syntactically correct, and

contains data sent by the receiving party to the sending party in response to the

substantive content of the related Document.

 

2.3.5 If the Response Document indicates an error, neither party shall rely on

the Document or portion of the Document which is in error, if known. The sending party

shall attempt to correct the errors and promptly retransmit the Document or applicable

portion or otherwise contact the receiving party. If the Response Document does not

indicate any error, the Response Document shall constitute conclusive evidence a

Document has been received in syntactically correct form.

 

2.3.6 If the parties have mutually agreed to the use of a Response Document, and

if there has been proper receipt pursuant to Section 2.1, verification and successful

decryption pursuant to Section 2.2, and if the receiving party nevertheless fails to

transmit a Response Document, the sending party's records of the contents of the

Document shall control unless the sending party has retransmitted a Document pursuant to

Section 2.3.7.

 

2.3.7 Retransmissions. If the sending party of a Document has not received a

corresponding functional acknowledgment or response document within the time frame

indicated in the Exhibit(s), the sending party shall retransmit the Document and such

Document shall be considered a new transmission for purposes of Section 2.
