5.4.8 Published documents

Published share offer documents, including printed media and electronic documents, form part of the contract between the society and its potential and existing members. As soon as such documents are distributed, or placed in the public domain, they should not be altered or changed without communicating these changes to all existing members and applicants. This means that care should be taken to ensure that all the details of the offer document are correct before publication. If any substantive changes are made to an offer document after it has been published, and before the offer is closed, then all applicants and existing members should be contacted to inform them of the changes and to allow applicants the option of cancelling their application.
