Agency Name Change Announcement
« on: September 11, 2013, 08:51:04 AM »
Attn:   DSWG & Data Providers,    11-Sep-13

Following the agency re-naming in California last year, the RMPC has recently undertaken the process of
converting California agency codes in the database:
  *  'CDFG' has changed to 'CDFW' to reflect the agency renamed to 'California Dept. Fish & Wildlife'
  *  'CDFGKT' has changed to 'CDFWKT' to reflect the rename to 'California Dept. Fish & Wildlife /Klamath-Trinity' branch offices

This change is now implemented for Reporting Agency, Release Agency, Sampling Agency and in all lookup tables throughout the database.

Please review your data processing & filter programming as may be necessary to make the agency changes.  This change will be reflected in the PSC Format data specification for its next update.

Thanks and best regards to all.
