Control Board (CCB)Meeting Requirements

Note: There is
a preference for team CCB meetings, but if the urgency of the change will not
permit the meeting, the ECR / ECO may be processed serially. The reviewers
should utilize the User’s guides.

Paragraph on aspects of the change
that should be reviewed during the CCB review.

Engineering Change Requests (ECR) ideally are presented to the Change Control
Board (CCB) for approval and confirmation prior to incorporation. The level of
CCB reviewers is often determined by the classification, complexity, risk or

provide an adequate assessment of all technical and contractual implications
(cost, schedule, etc) of the proposed change in order for the CCB to make an
informed decision. The CCB review ensures that all affected and necessary
functional disciplines are advised of the proposed change, have the opportunity
to contribute to the decision process and accept responsibility for any
resulting actions. The CCB review also provides a record of the history of a
