To Integrate CPs

this is Gila's process

To check integrated CPs

Why: Integrating CPs into Final Text volumes and TI supplements is a task requiring attention to detail. It is beneficial to check the integration work prior to delivering updated documentation to the Documentation Specialist. This provided a "second set of eyes" on the documentation, and may prevent a future CP.

When: After CP integration is complete, before submitting a document for publication.

Who: Ideally, someone other than the editor who did the integration. Domain co-chairs assign this task to members of the Technical Committee.


(1) Find the document you are assigned to verify

(2) Identify the CPs approved for Final Text

(3) Identify the Final Text CPs that affect the document you are verifying

  • In the spreadsheet, examine the "Vol/Supp affected" column to identify the CPs you need. Notice that some CPs affect more than one document

Verify the integration

  • Open the document to verify and a CP affecting the document.
  • In the CP, the changes are included beneath the CP's rationale. Interpret the editor's instructions as follows:

a. Editors instructions are included in a 'box'. This guides the editor to find the location in the document to make a change. b. If the text in the CP just flat text (regular font), that means it has been copied from the TI or TF in order to help you find the position in the document where the change occurs. “Regular font” text in the CP is NOT a change to the Volume or TI. c. If text is bold and underlined font, that indicates text that should be inserted d. If text is bold and strike-out font, it means delete the text
