Consultation process 

We welcome your input on regulations, discussion papers, and draft documents, which are made available for public comment for a specified period of time, usually 30, 60, or 120 calendar days. After this period, the projects remain visible for feedback on the comments themselves for 15 calendar days.

Please note that comments submitted, including names and affiliations, are made public and are posted in the official language in which they were received. At the end of the consultation period, we review all public input and prepare a consultation report, summarizing the feedback.
