# Where exactly is the Morse code character ";" defined?

I've seen that quite often in Morse code tables (for example here), under punctuation, a semicolon ";"character is listed.

However, the ITU-R M.1677-1 doesn't specify that character as a part of the International Morse code.

So my question is: Where is the semicolon character actually defined?
