The purpose of this form is to provide an exact and common format for inventory data of Coronary Serial Numbers issued for transfer to the MONICA Data Centre (MDC). The data should be sent on magnetic tapes, not on paper forms. Instructions for data transfer on magnetic tapes are given in Part V, Section 1: Data Transfer to the MONICA Data Centre.

The serial number inventory data are needed to check that no data have been lost during the various stages of data flow between the detection of suspect events and inclusion of data in the master file of the MDC.

These serial number inventory data should be submitted to the MDC according to the schedule and for the serial numbers indicated in Part V, Section 1.

The COLUMNS indicate the columns on which the value of the item is to appear in the record on the magnetic tape. Data for different serial numbers must be written on different records.
