The final versions of the proposals approved by the RDA Steering Committee
during and after the November 2016 meeting have been posted on this
website. Access to these "Sec final" documents is available via the new
documents page (

The changes in RDA will not be in effect until they appear in the April
2017 Update of RDA Toolkit.

If you're interested in which instructions are affected by the approved
proposals, a table
<> is
available for your use. It lists the new, revised, and deleted instructions
and indicates where changes were made (in the instructions, examples,
and/or references). It also includes the document number; if you want to
read the background and justification for the changes, consult that
document series in the appropriate community section of the Documents page (

Due to the 3R Project <>, there will be
no further changes to RDA after the April 2017 update until April 2018.
