2017 Draft Protocols

Please send all comments regarding these protocols to

Dr. Hamilton Lempert, Chairperson, until December 1, 2016.

After December 1, 2016 the 2017 protocols will be updated with any necessary changes.

The final version with a list of all changes will be published on this website

at the end of December to go into effect January 1, 2017.
