The size of IssuingOrganizationID

The document "SIS P3 - IATA IS XML Invoice Standard - V3 1.xls" is told that the size of a field OrganizationID or IssuingOrganizationID is equal 25, and then written: This is the code to identify the Billing Entity. This should be a valid IATA/ ATA Prefix Code (Numeric code in case of airlines, Alphanumeric code in case of Non Airline entities) This field should be left-padded with zeros so that there are 3 characters always. For Example: American Airlines should be represented as '001' and not '1', Air India should be represented as '098' and not '98', Star Alliance Services GMbH should be represented as 'A29' Is a typing error the size of field (25) ? Thank you.

Dear Anna,

This is not a typing error. This was set according to the original standard that we did not change, so regardless what the standard allows we expect the three characters specifying the Billing Entity.

Best regards
