Re:  Stakeholder Comments on Strawdog Draft – Compliance Process

On April 23, 2010, the MSA notified stakeholders that it had commenced a Stakeholder Consultation regarding its proposed Compliance process.  At that time, the MSA published a ‘Strawdog’ draft upon which interested parties were invited to provide comment.

Comments were received from six market participants during the comment period set out in the related project schedule.  In accordance with its Stakeholder Consultation Process, the MSA is publishing the comments received on the Strawdog draft.  Those comments can be found through the following links:

The MSA is considering the comments received and will formally respond to the comments when it publishes the revised Draft process.  That step is anticipated to occur on May 31, 2010.  For clarity, the process is currently in the ‘Develop’ stage and the expected timelines remain those set in the Strawdog.

Interested parties can track the process through the Current Stakeholder Consultations link on the MSA website at:

We appreciate your participation in these matters.

Yours truly,
