Instructions for the proper application of the data type
1. The designator specified in this table should be used to the greatest
extent possible to indicate the type of data contained within the body of the BUFR bulletin.
2. Where more than one type is contained in the text, the designator for one of the data types
should be used.
3. When the table does not contain a suitable designator for the
data type, an alphabetic designator which is not assigned in the
table should be introduced and the WMO secretariat notified.
