New ATC inicial call in NAT HLA

LIDO recently published a new way how the inicial call to ATC in NAT HLA should be made, starting Jan 1 st. There´s no more the need to state "CPDLC and ADS conected" and no read back of the HF frequencies are necessary.
The canadian AIC 30/2015 explains that this new procedure was adopted in a NAT IMG meeting as a proposal amendment until a new edition of the GOLD is issued.
You can find the same explanation in the portuguese AIC 9/2015.
I couldn´t find this amnedment in the UK AIP nor in the ICAO web page.

Does anybody know if this is really beeing implemented?I´m still hearing everybody making the same old call.

A case of 'old habits die hard'.

Procedures are now as the docs state but I can't see any HF Radio Operator getting too stressed if crews persist in making initial calls as per the previous method.
