A Designated Office evaluation includes a minimum 14-day public comment period. This period allows anyone to view the project proposal and any related documents on the YESAB Online Registry (YOR). If required, the public comment period can be extended by the assessor for up to 35 days.
After reviewing the information submitted during this time period, an assessor can determine that an additional public comment period is required. This additional period includes a minimum 10-day period to a maximum 35-day period. All comments and documents submitted to an assessment are posted to the YOR. Extensions to public comment periods are at the discretion of the assessor.
