Change Requests

The Change Request (CR) procedure is used to create revised versions of 3GPP specifications after their initial approval. The three main reasons why a change might be required are to add a new feature, correct-clarify-enhance an existing feature of a Release still under development or to correct an error in a specification which is functionally frozen.

Releases

3GPP uses a system of parallel "Releases" which provide developers with a stable platform for the implementation of features at a given point and then allow for the addition of new functionality in subsequent Releases.
