The only documentation you need is the advancement guideline
The only time the BoR can NOT give the rank is when they determine
that all the requirements were not done. This is my understanding of
what the advancement guide says. It does say the BoR must reach a
unanimous decision. If not, it is unclear on what would happen UNLESS
there were some missed requirements. Then, the Scout is told the
problem and what must be done to correct it. Another BoR is convened
when the Scout and his SM determine the problem is corrected.
This should NEVER happen if the SM is doing his job. The SM
conference should detect any problems.
