You are not wrong Alan,


The deadlines are not yet known, but if we refer to last year, the
applications were accepted from 6 January till 7 March; Singapore (8-12
February) would be in the middle of the application period. So, I believe
that we should start earlier discussing the guidelines and the coordination
process so that each RALO try to comply with the established guidelines
while applying.

Thanks Holly.


I don't know the exact timing, but I suspect that Singapore would be 

too late for that. It is possible that the FBSC might meet in 

Singapore to review requests though. But I could be wrong...
