Compliance testing for NCAMP 2022

There will be no formal scripted compliance for NCAMP 2022 however, all first production files will be processed through compliance first. Some file submitters have raised the question of how to submit their first production file post NCAMP 22 implementation. It would be appreciated if submitters could place their first production files as notated below:

  • NMDS: Placed in the usual folder with TEST in the file header
  • NBRS: Placed in the usual folder with CMPL in the file header
  • NNPAC: Placed in the nnpac/COMPLIANCE folder
  • NPF: Placed in the NPF CMPL Dropoff folder with CMPL in the batch name

Could you please contact us when you are implementing your NCAMP system changes in order for us to work together to ensure a smooth transition via

PRIMHD FWI indicator
