According to the DCM Z1 pages for the 046, "Until further notice do not use subfields $q - Establishment date or $r - Termination date,  continue to use subfield $s and subfield $t for start and end periods for corporate bodies."

I'd be interested in knowing if these subfields are ever going to be approved for use.

Good afternoon all,

Just a quick question to confirm -- even though the 046 subfields $q and $r for establishment/termination date of corporate bodies have been added to the MARC documentation, they still need to be approved for use in NACO records, right? 

Apologies if this is a repetitive question, my colleagues and I want to make sure we did not miss an update.

Thank you,
