How to handle Change Request? (Integrated Change Control)

In PMP Exam, We might get lot of questions related to Integrated Change Control and How to handle the Change Request.

I thought it would be good to share the knowledge on Change Control.


    Before Approval Scenario After Approval Scenario
Process group Changes Request Raised on   Approval Required for Changes? Approval Required for Changes? Approving Authority
Initating  Project Charter No Yes Project Sponsor
Planning Project Management Plan No Yes
CCB - Change Control Board 
Execution Any Documents Changes Cost, Scope and Time   Yes CCB
Monitoring and Control Any Documents Changes Cost, Scope and Time   Yes CCB
Closure Any Documents Changes Cost, Scope and Time   Yes CCB

To be clear, 
- In initiation phase, 
  Before Project Charter is approved by sponsor, Any change request raised can be included.
  After Project is approved by sponsor, Any change request need to approved by sponsor.

Vice versa for the rest of the things as per the table given above.    

Any change request which affects the cost, scope and time baselines need to under go below process.
