The most notable change in presentation is that COP-1 is defined as a procedure in the Data Link Layer of the OSI Model in this Recommended Standard, whereas it is defined as a procedure in the Transfer Layer (a sublayer of the Data Link Layer) in reference [B2]. Together with the change in presentation, a few technical details in reference [B2] have been changed based upon experience in using this procedure. Also, some technical terms in reference [B2] have been changed in order to unify the terminology used in all CCSDS Recommended Standards that define space link protocols. These changes are listed in annex D of this Recommended Standard. Through the process of normal evolution, it is expected that expansion, deletion, or modification of this document may occur. This Recommended Standard is therefore subject to CCSDS document management and change control procedures, which are defined in the Procedures Manual for the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems.
