Following the consultations that took place between April and July 2016 on the first draft of the CMS Family Guidelines on Environmental Impact Assessments for Marine Noise-generating Activities (see CMS Notification 2016/009), the revised draft is now available for final comments by Focal Points and members of the advisory bodies and relevant working groups of CMS, ACCOBAMS and ASCOBANS.
The draft Guidelines and related Technical Support Information Modules are available here: http://www.cms.int/en/guidelines/cms-family-guidelines-EIAs-marine-noise
Your comments are sought on the draft guidelines by 15 February 2017. Please email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The resulting revised version will be presented to the 2nd Meeting of the Sessional Committee of the Scientific Council (ScC-SC2, July 2017) and subsequently to the 12th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties to CMS (COP12, 22-28 October 2017, Manila, Philippines) for adoption.
(This is a repeat of CMS Notification 2016/031 sent 10 November 2016.)
