(2) There will be morning and afternoon breaks and lunch breaks.

(3) The meetings may adjourn early if scheduled speakers complete their statements in less time than currently is scheduled.

(4) An individual, whether speaking in a personal or a representative capacity on behalf of an organization, may be limited to a 10-minute statement. If possible, we will notify the speaker if additional time is available.

(5) The FAA and JAA will try to accommodate all speakers. If the available time does not permit this, speakers generally will be scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis. However, speakers may be excluded if necessary to present a balance of viewpoints and issues.

(6) Representatives of the FAA and JAA will preside over the meetings.

(7) The FAA and JAA will review and consider all material presented by participants at the meetings. Position papers or material presenting views or information related to proposed harmonization initiatives may be accepted at the discretion of the FAA and JAA presiding officers.

Therefore, the meetings will be conducted in an informal and nonadversarial manner. No individual will be subject to cross-examination by any other participant; however, panel members may ask questions to clarify a statement and to ensure a complete and accurate record.
