English term or phrase: preparation in progress
Here is the deal. A document (operating procedure) contains a list of reference documents. Some of these reference documents do exist while others are still in the works. For the latter, I need to include in parentheses a note indicating their status of currently being developed. "Preparation in progress" is first that comes to mind, however I am not sure if there might be better options to express this. TIA
