    Braille Formats 2016 8.6.2 shows the following symbol for the checkmark: % (Not sure why Simbraille won’t show, but you get the idea.) UEB says this symbol is the radical without vinculum  (p. 305 in Rules of Unified English Braille).

    A new UEB symbol for the checkmark is shown on the UEB web page at

    3.28 NEW UEB symbol for the check mark (Change as of April 18, 2018)
    Use for ✓ (U+2713) and (U+1f5f8).
    3.28 Check mark, tick ⠈⠩
    3.28.1 Follow print for use of the check mark.

    Am I correct in assuming this new UEB symbol would be the correct symbol for that list in Braille Formats 2016 8.6.2?

    Yes, you are correct.  The UEB symbol for a checkmark came out after BF 2016 and that symbol takes precedence.
