Hi Scopy,

» » Could it be that the May 24 version is the updated and thus the recommended version to use?

Yes.
» » Was also wondering what was the modification done :ponder:

Unfortunately most regulatory documents are published without track changes. Not uncommon that older versions are overwritten (worst example: the EMA’s 15 versions of the Q&A document).

» I have skimmed through both documents. I did not notice any difference …

Not surprising. I used an online tool. Requirement(s) in the version of May 21 changed to recommendation(s):Not unusual for the FDA to give recommendations rather than requirements. However, changing the wording was not consequent. In many places we still read e.g., “the requirements for […] are listed in Table 1.” – where only recommendations are given.
