Searching by Record Number

 23 Nov 2021 02:43

The record number is a part of the record unique identification (UID) code. It is a unique number that is assigned automatically to each record published in the Clearing-House and is used to uniquely distinguish records. 

UID consist of characters and codes. The record number exists near the end of the UID, just before the revision number. Example: “123456” in “BCH-DEC-FR-123456-2”.

There are two ways to search by record number:

  • Use the free text search box located on the top of the Search page above Global Filters. 

Type the record number of interest and click ENTER or click on the magnifying glass. 

If your record number is referenced in other records, the results will display all records that contain that number. However, the original record will appear as the first on the list of search results.

OR

  • Use the “Free Text” sub-filter:

Select a ‘Record Type’. In the “Free Text” box, type the record number and click ENTER or click on the magnifying glass. 

If your record number is referenced in other records, the results will display all records that contain that number. However, the original record will appear as the first on the list of search results.


Note: In both cases, the results always show the latest version of the record.
