HIPAA Pack Compliance Check add additional segment terminator defined in the X12 implementation guide.
Compliance check is failing when the File Separator <FS> x'1C' is used along with carriage return and line feed. <FS><CR><LF> will cause a compliance error, <FS> without the <CR><LF> passes compliance.
Compliance check should pass with <FS> <FS><LF> <FS><CR><LF>
Terminal Control Characters are valid as Segment Terminators and will pass compliance when used alone. But when combined with carriage return and/or line feed they fail compliance. Since some segment terminators are defined to allow the carriage return/line feed, the other X12 valid segment terminators should also be included.
This issue was previously reported as a PMR 90443,004,000 Test files are attached to that PMR.
