To Change the scorebook or not

I have been provoked me to a more indepth thought. Who has authority over the score book? Who decideds the scorebook is to be changed? Can a coach tell a scorer to change the book?

depends on the change and when

Once you approve the score book - it is yours.
If a coach wants a change made after that point - other than who points are credited too - it has to go through the official, because there may be consequences to the change.

If it is changing a number, adding a name, those things carry penalties.
If it is who a foul is charged to only you can tell the Scorer who committed the foul so if they want it changed they are going to have to work through the officials.
New and improved: if it's new it's not improved; if it's improved it's not new.

The Official Scorer has authority over the scorebook

Teams are required to supply the Official Scorer with certain information, in a certain time frame. As the game goes along, the scorer is to notify the nearer official when there is an infraction of the rules as pertains to roster, subs and player's numbers.

A coach can tell the scorer to make a change. If the change is an infraction of the rules, the scorer notifies an official and it is penalized as necessary.

A scorer may determine that a change must be made (player not on roster enters the game.) If the change is an infraction of the rules, the scorer notifies an offcial and it is penalized as necessary.

Unfortunately, some scorers are not aware of their actual duties and rely on the official to instruct them. Once a scorer has been instructed, by a team or an official, to make a change they should make the change and notify an official if it is an infraction.
