Just such an instance happened fairly recently with the addition of the
Family Life MB to the Eagle list. The change was announced 1 year (or 6
months, I can't remember which) before any Eagle would have to have Family
Life as one of their required badges. It was announced that any BOR before
Sept 1 would not require the new Family Life and after Sept 1 would start
requiring Family Life.
In the merit badge requirement arena though I am unsure. But my guess would
be that if they are ADDing requirements, then you would have a 'time' to
finish under the old requirements, but if they are deleting requirements,
they would typically take effect immediately. This scenario happened to me
when they changed the number of merit badges for Eagle from 24 to 21 in '79.
In fact, my Eagle app still had room for 24 MB's on it because the new forms
had not been sent out yet.
