Steve, Ron, others who have worked on this, thanks for a very impressive and well drafted document.

Please find attached a redline with some edits which I suggest might make useful additions. These center mainly around showing our appreciation for the fact that there is a public comment period on this in the first place (I feel this was missing from the current draft), asking for more open GAC meetings (inline with recent discussions we've had on this list, plus Heather's own comments). I have also deleted Ron's add to safeguard 6,7,8. I'm sorry, I just don't agree with it and feel the original draft is sufficient to make the BC's point.

Hope this helps.
