CGO IS IDEC - 3 decimal places requested for all currencies?

Dear IATA help desk,
we need your support for the following:
The SIS-P3-CGO-IS-IDEC-Record-Structure says for nearly all amounts to be listed that they have to have 3 decimal places. How should the statement be for currencies which have in general only 2 decimal places like the USD or EUR?
 
Example:
Amount subject to ISC = USD 37.550
ISC 5 % = 1.8775
==> rounded to 3 decimal places 1.878
==> rounded to 2 decimal places 1.880
 
Which result is the correct one?
Respectively: Have all amonts to be listed with full calculated 3 decimal places?
 
Thank you for your soon answer and kind regards, Gudrun (LCAG)

Dear Gudrun,

 

Sorry for the delay. We have a rounding tolerance of USD 0.05. As long as the amount falls within this tolerance the system will not fail the file regardless of whether it is rounded to two decimals or three decimals.

 

Hope that clarifies.

Rgds,
Ashley
