      Permitting editorial discretion, we will amend the definition of PID-8 to:

      1) identity the reality that PID-8 will continue to be used and that it's meaning is generally ambiguous

      2) and that IGs and trading partner agreement should define the meaning of this field. 

       

      The goal of the Gender Harmony updates to the v2 base standard is to not significantly change the definition/usage of the existing fields, so we don't want to change the existing description. Update the descriptions of PID-8, GT1-9 and IN1-43 appending with the following text:

       

      This field has historically been used to variably exchange both sex and gender values and therefore this field is not clearly defined. This field is expected to continue to be used as it has been in existing implementations and use of this field is subject to local existing interpretation and/or implementation guides. The GSP and GSR segments should be used to exchange more rigorously defined sex or gender concept.

      This is related to Jira V2-25410 GSP segment definition comment, but this request is to amend the definition for PID-8 to add:

      Suggested text:  "The concept of Administrative Sex might not be clearly defined and is sometimes overloaded with other concepts in real-world implementations however Business Partner Agreements, Implementation Guides, and Guidance will allow PID-8 values to be used effectively."
