<<We have a LARGE series of documents that refer to Bellcore
TR-303. Bellcore has changed its name to Telcordia Technologies
and has
changed the standard to GR-303. Now, this is a Standard that is >>

I maintained our engineers' technical library for a couple of years and can
give you a little input on this subject.

The numbering scheme Bellcore uses actually has nothing to do with
Tellcordia - it is how Bellcore marks the 'evolution' of their standards.
If I recall correctly, it goes like this:

The first standard format is a TA (Technical Advisory, I think) - this then
becomes a TR (Technical Requirements) - the last stage is a GR (General

To my knowledge (though I haven't ordered anything recently), Tellcordia is
still sending out stuff with the name of Bellcore on it.

My recommendation would be to leave the docs alone unless you are revising
them for something else. Then, verify with your engineers that there isn't
a newer/later version of the standard and if so, which version of the
standard the product represents.

My 2c worth!
