It is important to document the process by which Standard Practice Guidelines will be written, reviewed, approved, and retired in order to promote compliance with work processes and to effectively manage change. The purpose of this Standard Practice Guideline (SPG) is to establish a process for the preparation, review, implementation, and retirement of an SPG.
