recommendations from the Performance Review

and possible adoption. A draft of LoA should be
prepared by June 30, 2011 for further approval by
the Parties.

States and Canada would continue to work on a
new draft of the Rules of Procedure for Cooperating

and submit it again for consideration at the next

include a clear procedural distinction between
Members and Cooperating Non-Members (CNMs)
and the financial implications for CNMs.
The materials will be presented for
discussion at the 19
th
Annual Meeting (see
Plenary agenda item 11).

nomination and a decision making process. A first
draft of the proposal will be presented at the next
Annual Meeting.
