Document Change Request Definition

A document change request (DCR) is a type of change request used to describe a proposed change to documents (e.g., standard operations, procedures, instructions). The DCR initiates the change process and promotes discussions with the affected team. Upon approval, the DCR is released and a document change order (DCO) is used to implement the change request.
