It is necessary for the BCP updating process to be properly structured and controlled. Whenever changes are made to the BCP they are to be fully tested and appropriate amendments should be made to the training materials. This will involve the use of formalised change control procedures under the control of the BCP Team Leader.

At each Chapter and Section level, the Plan contains a Process Control Summary to be used to ensure that each section of the plan has been completed and reviewed. The Process Control Summary should contain the activity start date, and also a date reflecting each time that chapter, section or topic was updated.
