SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In accordance with section 252(c)(1)(A)(i) of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (42 U.S.C. 6272(c)(1)(A)(i)) (EPCA), the following notice of meeting is provided:

The ERE7 sessions will be held from 9:30-5:30 p.m. on November 17, and from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on November 18. The purpose of ERE7 is to train IEA Government delegates in the use of IEA emergency response procedures by reacting to a hypothetical oil supply disruption scenario.

The agenda for ERE7 is under the control of the IEA. ERE7 will involve break-out groups, the constitution of which is under the control of the IEA.
