at the headquarters of the IEA, 9, rue de la F[eacute]d[eacute]ration 
75015 Paris, France, and in the UIC Building, 16 rue Jean Rey, 75015

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with section 252(c)(1)(A)(i) 
of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (42 U.S.C. 6272(c)(1)(A)(i)) 
(EPCA), the following notice of meeting is provided:
    The ERE6 sessions will be held from 2:00 p.m.-5:30 p.m. on November 
26, from 9:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m. on November 27, and from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 
p.m. on November 28. The purpose of ERE6 is to train IEA Government 
delegates in the use of IEA emergency response procedures by reacting 
to a hypothetical oil supply disruption scenario.
    The agenda for ERE6 is under the control of the IEA. ERE6 will 
involve break-out groups, the constitution of which is under the 
control of the IEA. The IEA anticipates that individual break-out 
groups will not include multiple IAB or IEA Reporting Company 
representatives that would qualify them as separate ``meetings'' within 
the meaning of the Voluntary Agreement and Plan of Action to Implement 
the International Energy Program. It is expected that the IEA will 
adopt the following agenda:
