What is BCP (Best Current Practice)?

A Best Current Practice (BCP) is used for the execution in engineering and data technology. It is more adaptable than a standard since techniques and devices are consistently evolving. The Internet Engineering Task Force distributes Best Current Practice documents in a numbered record series. The Internet standards measure itself is characterized in a progression of BCPs, as is the structure of the IETF, Internet Engineering Steering Group, Internet Architecture Board, and other groups involved in that process.
