What happens if a state changes an existing standards document? What happens to the GUIDs?

Modified on: Mon, 25 Nov, 2019 at 3:46 PM

When a state makes changes to an existing document, our Collections Group makes corresponding changes to the document in our Standards Registrysm.

Sometimes these changes are extensive and require a recapture, sometimes they are minor and include grammatical and punctuation changes only.

Grammatical, punctuation, and changes to numbering, will not change the existing GUID. These types of changes are considered edits and do not alter the meaning of the topic. If new topics are added, new GUIDs will be added to the document. If topics are deleted, GUIDs will be removed from the document.

If the changes to the document are so extensive, that a recapture is required, the Collections Group will publish a new document to our Standards Registrysm. These standards will receive entirely new GUIDs.
