CSv02.04 is effective for all reportable cases diagnosed 1/1/2012 and forward. Therefore, CSv02.04 will have to be implemented before the processing of any 2012+ cases. After CSv02.04 has been implemented, all cases need to be processed under CSv02.04 regardless of diagnosis year. Please see the individual standard-setter requirements for more specific information.
Review the changes listed in the Release Notes in the support documents tab.
Review section 3.3 of the Implementation Guide for the conversions and specific cases requiring manual review by the registrar.
