NOTES:

 

(1)    The closed bracket sign ) indicates that the corresponding code figure is reserved for the previously named center.

 

(2)    To indicate whether the originating/generating center is a sub-center or not, the following procedure should be applied:

           In BUFR Edition 4, use octets 7-8 of section 1 with the following meaning:

        Code figure
0                     
Not a sub-center, the originating/generating center is the center defined by octets 5-6 in section 1 of BUFR edition 4.
1 to 254          
Identifier of the sub-center which is the originating/generating center. The identifier of the sub-center is allocated by the associated center, which is defined by octet 5-6 in
                       
section 1 of BUFR edition 4. The sub-center identifiers should be supplied to the WMO Secretariat by the associated center(s) for publication.

(3)   For the definition of sub-centers provided to the WMO Secretariat, see Common Code table C-12.
