To benefit from the additional time due to the postponement of the CCMAS41:
  • An online discussion group on method’s endorsement has been established and will be managed by the USA and Australia. The aim of the discussion group is to facilitate preparation for the WG on endorsement which is scheduled to meet virtually on 11 and 12 May 2021. Members/observers interested in joining this discussion group can register at:

    Usergroup name: CCMAS-endorsement-discussion

    The outcomes of the discussion group will be made available as a CRD for consideration by the PWG on endorsement.

A webinar to update members and observers on the work of CCMAS was held on 23–25 November 2020. Recordings and presentations are available here.
