Once the National Report has been verified and approved, it should be submitted to the appropriate Secretariat/Coordinating Unit of the CMS Family. Once submitted, the report will be reviewed by the Secretariat/Coordinating Unit and possibly returned to the country with a request for additional input and further refinement, if necessary.
The final report will be included in the overall international implementation analysis for the respective Instrument. It should be borne in mind that following its final submission, the report becomes an official and public document and will be submitted to the forthcoming meeting of the CMS or its instruments’ decision-making body.
