If you have no alternative, and must run a jumper wire from one side of the circuit board to the other, wires may be routed through a plated through hole provided the wire is insulated and insulation sleeving is placed in the hole.
The routing, termination and bonding of these jumper wires should be documented by engineering change notice instructions or drawing notations.
