Standing Orders are set by officers within a chain-of-command. A standing order may be put in place for the duration of a mission, or in may be permanent aboard or starship or fixed-facility. Upon assuming a new posting, officers and enlisted personnel are expected to learn the current standing orders in force.
Standing orders do not apply to visitors specifically, although they may concern them.
In many situations, the violation of a standing order results in a minor disciplinary action. Even so, standing orders are an important part of the command process and should be followed at all times.
