NPRMs Closed for Submissions
A Summary of Public Submissions (SOPS) document is published on the CAA Web site after the public consultation period has closed for any given NPRM. The SOPS provides a summary of each submission received and the CAA response to the submission. The CAA responses provide the formal CAA position on the submission.
After publication of the SOPS the CAA prepares the draft final rule for delivery to the Ministry of Transport. As a result of public submissions, the draft final rule may contain amendments to the original rule proposal contained in the NPRM. All changes to the rule wording resulting from public submissions will be noted in the CAA responses and in the text supporting the draft final rule.
If any of the proposed rules that are published in an NPRM are to be significantly amended as a result of the public submissions, then the CAA will engage in further consultation with the appropriate interested parties before the draft final rule is forwarded to the Ministry. Further consultation after receiving submissions is an exception rather than the norm.
