USEPA and EC intend to consult with stakeholders on proposed changes to the lists at the biennial meeting of the State of the Lakes Ecosystem Conference (SOLEC) or another appropriate forum. Existing processes for nominating or elevating substances will be used, e.g., Bioaccumulative Chemicals of Concern (BCCs) in the U.S., TSMP, and COA in Canada, or LaMP Critical Pollutants. It is not the intent of the Strategy to initiate a new nominating process. Existing nominating and chemical screening processes already include a strong public participation component.
