I may have answered my own question after looking at the technical specifications for the mould SID code:
"Example: A Mould SID Code of “IFPI A01xx” may be issued to you. The digits “A01” are unique to you. You will then use the last two digits to
allocate a unique code for each mould. The code for the first mould might be IFPI A0100, the code for the second “IFPI A0101”, and so on. Using
alphanumeric digits consisting of the numbers 0 through 9 and the letters of the Western alphabet A through Z, excluding “I”, “O”, “S” and “Q”, the plant has the ability to assign unique codes to 1,024 different moulds."
So it sounds to me that that I, O, S, and Q are reserved and should not be used. In this case, is it safe to assume the following if its tricky to read?
I = 1
O = 0
S = 5
Q = 0
If that is the case, someone might want to do a search in the database for any of the mould SID codes that contain any of those letters and correct accordingly. Then again, I guess its possible that plants don't follow that explicitly since the only reference to those excluded characters is in an example, not in the actual technical specifications. As far as I can tell, its up to the plant to decide on the last 2 characters of the mould SID code.
