In particular, when using the Commissioning Data Set Bulk Replacement Update Mechanism, the CDS ACTIVITY DATE and its "CDS Originating Date" are used by the Secondary Uses Service to validate that the CDS Type date applicability falls within the CDS REPORT PERIOD START DATE and the CDS REPORT PERIOD END DATE.
