Standard 4.3.1: By 4/1/97, all parties sending and

receiving data should accept a TCP/IP connection.

At a minimum, sending and receiving parties should designate

an internet address as a designated site for the receipt and

delivery of GISB standardized data sets subject to the

successful completion of pilot testing by 1/1/97 to ensure

that security, performance (within GISB standard data

transmission time), and reliability are acceptable. The GISB

data file format should be utilized. The Future Technology

Task Force should determine the direction of outstanding

issues such as security, archiving, receipt notification,

etc., by 7/1/96.


Standard 4.3.2 On time stamping, data leaves control of the

originator by the same time (deadline), regardless of

mechanism (3rd service provider time stamp is acceptable)

allow accumulation of all transactions to the pipeline. A

standard network protocol (TCP/IP) should be in service for

direct connect to the pipeline designed site by 4/1/97.


Standard 4.3.3: Originating party is any system

originating/creating the document reflecting the transaction

to be submitted (this could also include a third-party

of sending and receiving using HTTP.
