In preparation for the twentieth anniversary of the UCF®, updates are being carried out in August 2020.
Phase Zero Pilot Starts August 3
Five Common Controls will be merged and retired, and five Common Controls will be moved in the UCF hierarchy.
If Phase Zero takes place without unforeseen impact, Phase One will take place the week of August 10 with 10% of the changes.
The final phase will be the week of August 17 where all remaining changes will take place.
At any time during these changes if negative impact is realized, a rollback will be announced and will take place.
All changes will be posted here prior to being implemented.
What to expect for the Common Controls in your Builds and/or Lists:
Changing Text within the Common Control
The Common Control ID will remain the same.
Merging and Retiring Common Controls
It is possible a new Common Control can be introduced if none of the Citations in your List or Build are mapped to the remaining Common Control. You will want to review for the introduction of any new Common Controls mapped to already existing Citations. Citations will always persist; only the Common Control mapping will change. Authority Document mappings will never have any gaps.
Moving Common Controls in the Hierarchy
New Builds and Lists will reflect the new parent, siblings, and children of a Common Control that has moved in the hierarchy. The location of the Common Control will change, as well as the parent (Implied Controls), siblings and children (Implementation Controls).
