Changes arrive from a variety of sources. As papiNet is an open standard anyone can submit a request to improve the standard. Changes are categorized, organized, and reviewed by the papiNet CWG Change Control Group. This group meets minimally twice annual but has the flexibility to meet as often as required.

Most often, changes are submitted by the papiNet User Groups because these are the market specific segments participants working with and implementing the standard. Those not currently engaged within one of these User Groups, may submit a change request via www.papinet.org -> The Standard -> Questions or Requests link.
