Indication of interchange receipt implies that the recipient of the subject interchange: has received the interchange; and acknowledges the parts of the interchange that have been checked in order to assure that the data elements copied into the reporting UCI segment are syntactically correct; and has accepted liability for notifying the sender of acknowledgement or rejection of the other parts of the interchange; and has taken reasonable precautions in order to ensure that the sender is so notified.
