The Secretariat of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC), under the North American Free Trade Agreement, has published its overall work plan to collect relevant information with respect to the factual record on Coal-fire Power Plants submission.

On June 23, 2008, the CEC council decided to instruct the Secretariat to develop a factual record with respect to specific questions, including, National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System and State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permitting of approximately 40 coal-fired power plants in 10 U.S. States and the EPA's response to alleged failures by U.S. States to list mercury-impaired waterways.
