This is the first version of this policy to be published in the SCU

Policy Library (implemented 2012). This version is similar to the

previous version, but has undergone some formatting, administrative

and editorial changes. For example, as part of the migration to the

new SCU Policy Library, work was undertaken to standardise the

referencing of position and division names across the policy suite.

The names of some policies have also been amended to improve intuitive

access via the SCU Policy Library's "View A-Z" page. Where

appropriate these name changes have been incorporated into the text of

documents across the suite.
