What happens to the comments?


A committee will review all comments on the proposed changes and take one of the following actions:

  • recommend that the CCBFC approve the change as originally proposed
  • make editorial changes that do not alter the technical content and then recommend approval by the CCBFC
  • revise the change and recommend it for approval, if, in the view of the Standing Committee, the action would not result in substantial adverse reaction from the public
  • withdraw the change but consider it for possible re-submission in revised form in a future public review, or
  • withdraw the change.
