Before establishing a panel of the Board, the Executive Committee must issue guidelines specifying the information requirements for the Environmental and Socio-economic Effects Statement (ESE Statement) to be submitted by CMC for the review of its Casino Mine Project. An ESE Statement is essentially a project proposal submitted to a Panel of the Board.

Under the Panel Review Rules, the Executive Committee is required to prepare draft Environmental and Socio-economic Effects Statement Guidelines (ESE Statement Guidelines) and issue them for public review and comment.
