IRP, Inc., the official organization serving the 59 U.S. and Canadian jurisdictions that are members of the International Registration Plan, is undertaking a major project to rewrite, update and modernize the IRP Plan. This project is extremely important to all IRP jurisdictions and industry members. Recently, Ontario attended the Annual IRP Meeting and much of the emphasis and discussions were placed on the Plan Rewrite.
The 3nd draft of the IRP Plan Rewrite is now available on the IRP, Inc. website: Proposed Ballots 2006*.
We encourage you to review the proposed Plan Rewrite and provide feedback. Since this is such a large undertaking, several meetings have taken place with All Jurisdictions represented to review and comment on the Plan Rewrite. The progress of the Plan Rewrite project can also be viewed on the IRP, Inc.* website.
We are providing you with another opportunity to identify and discuss any areas that you may be concerned with and bring your comments forward to us. We in turn will coordinate all comments from Ontario and assure that they are brought forward to the Plan Rewrite Committee. If you have any comments or concerns regarding the proposed Plan Rewrite, please forward your comments to Jackie Zaffino at firstname.lastname@example.org by August 31, 2006
