This will allow time for sponsors to identify any issues early by checking the details of listings and advising the secretariat about any necessary corrections. The final draft, which will include items considered at the July PLAC meeting, will be sent out around 28 July 2016. This will be the final opportunity to check the details of listings and advise of any necessary corrections. Responses will be received until 11 August 2016.
