<OperatingUnit>Mandatory Business unit ID</OperatingUnit>
<InstructionText>Not mandatory</InstructionText>
<Text>Body of the clause</Text>
<Language>Mandatory, values that schema accepts </Language>
<GlobalYn>Mandatory N or Y</GlobalYn>
<StartDate>Mandatory YYYY-MM-DD</StartDate>
<EndDate>Mandatory if status is not DRAFT YYYY-MM-DD</EndDate>
