Activity and Organisation
**Schema Object** None
**Type of Change** Redefine embedded codelist as non-embedded
**Issue** The IATI standard contains a mixture of “embedded” and “non-embedded” codelists. Embedded codelists can only be modified through the formal upgrade process. Non-embedded codelists can be modified through a [light-touch consultation process](http://iatistandard.org/202/codelists/codelist-management/). In order to increase the flexibility and responsiveness of the standard only those codelists that impact on the functionality of data processing should remain embedded and all others should be redefined as “Non-embedded”.
**Proposal** Redefine the following Embedded codelists as Non-embedded.
