I make here comments regarding the consultation process.

Reviewing the reviewed Guidelines was very labour intensive. This could have been ameliorated by making a table available with:

-previous recommendations, new and updated recommendations and in which section these recommendations can be found.

LASA members have commented on the inordinate amount of effort required when reviewing the document because the consultation was poorly structured.
