Important Update on the Progress and Timeline of the EP III Update Process

The EP Association is continuing internal discussions with its members on the first draft of EP III and as a result the overall timeline for the EP III Update process has been extended.

Please see below a summary of the new timeline*:

  • EP Association consultation period and initial drafting of the EP III (September 2011 - March 2012).
  • Formal  60 day (minimum) Stakeholder Consultation and Public Comment Process (March - April 2012).
  • Finalisation and launch of the EP III framework (May - July 2012).

*The timeline might be subject to further extension if deemed necessary.

The EP Association would like re-emphasise that it is committed to carrying out a robust and consultative process therefore appreciates the patience of stakeholders and look forwards sharing the first draft of EP III with stakeholders in early Spring.

The EP Association will aim to be open and transparent during the EP III Update process, and we welcome feedback and comments from any interested party on both process and substance. If you have not already joined the EP Association mailing list you can register your interest here.
