10 Location Entry Codes
CIE operates a system of entry codes based on location. In practice,this means that for some components there will now be twocomponent codes where previously there was only one, e.g. Centrespreviously entering 9706/02 will be directed to enter either 9706/21 or9706/22. The first digit of the new component code will be the currentcomponent number, so 9707/02 becomes 9707/21 and 9707/22.For further information about Location Entry Codes, please refer tothe appropriate section of the Procedures for the Submission ofEntries (INT./E.3 Booklet) 2009.
