The timeline for the implementation of the new rules is divides in two steps:
- First Step – Rules: I03-30, I12-60, U01-30, 9I03-10, and 9I12-10 – test available from 04 July 2022, and production from 12 September 22; and
- Second Step – Rules: 9I03-20, 9I03-30, 9I03-40, 9I12-20, and 9I12-30 – test available from 06 March 2023, and production from 12 June 2023
Nevertheless, a few States have already implemented the new validation rules.
