Category 3 IRPs and their DCC System impact

Category 3 IRPs are those that are non-DCC System impacting and do not require any DCC testing. However, modifications which only contain category 3 IRPs may be listed as having a DCC System impact in the table above. This occurs when that modification is the only modification impacting a specific version of GBCS. This causes an indirect DCC System impact as the DCC must test against that new version of GBCS. If other modifications targeted for the same release impact the same version of GBCS, then no DCC System impact will be highlighted against any category 3 IRP modification as the testing would be necessary for the other modifications in any case.
