I have never seen strictly prescribed formats for reporting BFM, etc., to LC. I use something like this
Just one new authority record:
to report BFM. (I find it easier to proofread the numbers in the message when I insert the dashes.)
When reporting duplicate authority records, I do it this way:
Please delete no2004-699992 ; it duplicates no2004-700003
Please delete no97-32009 ; it duplicates no93-10724.
I think the main thing is for the information to be very clear. If the folks at LC prefer something different, I haven’t ‘gotten the message’.

Subject: Templates for NACO BFM reporting
Are there templates for reports to be submitted per https://www.loc.gov/aba/pcc/naco/bfmguide.html ?
I gather that these are made according to a rather strict form.
