Moving standards from draft to live deployment
Draft – Pending – Authorised – Live – Previous
When a document is passed for approval it moves from a ‘Draft’ state to a ‘Pending’ state. It is now locked and cannot be changed. If the authorisation is successful the document then becomes ‘Authorised’. It will remain in this condition until it is made ‘Live’.
This cycle repeats for every change made to the standard, building up a rich history of change and improvement that can be tracked through the archive of ‘Previous’ versions.
