The preparatory meeting will result in a so-called Scoping paper, with a proposal for an outline in the interim reports and a timeline for its implementation. The preparatory meeting is tentatively scheduled to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in December 2024. The draft outline will be sent to the panel for approval in early 2025, before author groups can be selected to work on the report.
