This document addresses the following aspects of writing an effective CMD:

  • a brief overview of the hearing process
  • guiding principles and points to remember
  • writing tips (such as principles of plain language, and the use of visual aids)
  • suggested format and order of information for applicants and intervenors preparing CMDs, so that externally submitted CMDs are in the same format as CNSC staff submissions
