    Welcome to EL&U. we have some issues with your Q: Basically you are asking for proof-reading, which we don't do here. Also, it is unclear what "spreaded" has to do with it. – Cascabel Apr 9 at 19:34
  • @Cascabel I wouldn't entirely rule out "speaded". The OED has two examples of its adjectival use from the last half-century: - 1967 Asian Folklore Stud. 26 134 Sitting or standing in a circle, the woman folk with spreaded locks and careless dress, sing these songs. 2001 Epidemiology & Infection 127 498/1 A slow rise was noted, with more spreaded curve, reaching the maximum value later. – WS2 Apr 9 at 19:45
  • You need to correct the misspelling of "grammatically" in the question. – WS2 Apr 9 at 19:47
  • Hunh...I wasn't ruling it out, but the OP was asking us to make a connection which was not completely clear. I realize now that they were asking if it could substitute for "published".@WS2 – Cascabel Apr 9 at 19:47

"There are published procedures" is correct.

"Spreaded" isn't a word. The past tense of "spread" is the same, "spread". More importantly, "spread" is not used in this way to indicated "distributed". Various correct alternatives might be:

"There is widely distributed information on the procedures."

"Details of the procedures are spread throughout the training manual."

"He spread the news of the change in procedures."
