1986 onwards:
Year, in full 4-digit numeric form. (this has been calculated by : (1) Subtracting one from year of registration if month of occurence is greater than month of registration (2) Making year of registration the year of occurence, if month of occurence is not greater than month of registration NB Registrations of more than 11 months but less than 1 year after the occurence are wrongly assigned, but these are few If the registration year (REYRABIM) is equal to or greater than 1986, REYRABIM is transferred to YROCLBIM
