NOTES:
(1)     The latest versions, 21(.0.0) (GRIB) and 30(.0.0) (BUFR and CREX), are effective as from 2 May 2018.

          The version number may consist of three parts: formal version number (for operational updates).sub-1 (for pre-
          operational updates).sub-2 (others, such as editorial corrections).  The editorial corrections are made for the
          consistency with the Manual on Codes, Volume I.2 (WMO No. 306) to be published and usually incorporated in
          the formal version.

(2)      Tables and templates (docx, pdf) in the "Latest" column contain operational and pre-operational (in Italic)
          entries, both of which could be used in operational data and products.

(3)      Entries "under validation" and "validation complete but waiting for effective date", i.e. non-operational entries,
          are available separately in the non-operational column (docx, pdf). Please note that non-operational entries
          may not be used in operational data and products, and validation entries may be modified during validation
          process.

(4)      The txt/xml (zip) files in the "Latest" column contain operational and pre-operational entries of GRIB, BUFR,
          CREX and common code tables. These could be incorporated in operational encoders/decoders.

(5)      The text/xml (zip) files in the non-operational column contain operational, pre-operational and non-operational
           entries, which are sopecifically made for validation purposes and may assist checking integrity of new entries
