What's Next?

The Executive Committee have finalized the ESE Statement Guidelines. The finalized guidelines set out the information requirements for the ESE Statement to be prepared by CMC.

By August 19, 2016, CMC is required to provide the Executive Committee with a written schedule of the time it will take CMC to prepare and submit its ESE Statement. 

When CMC submits its ESE Statement, the Executive Committee will determine whether the statement contains sufficient information to proceed with establishing a panel or whether additional information is still required from the proponent.

Once the Executive Committee is satisfied the ESE Statement contains sufficient information, it will:

  • Select the panel members and designate a chairperson;
  • Establish the terms of reference for the panel; and
  • Publish notice of the establishment of the panel and its terms of reference.
