The timeline was published on GLA's blog in mid-August and gives more detailed information than that provided by DOS:

UPDATE 9/28/12: On Tuesday, September 25, IBESR held a meeting with children's home directors to explain and clarify the new procedures. All Blessings International posted a translation of some of the discussions on their blog: All Blessings International in Haiti, IBESR Meeting, 9/25/2012, http://kashaiti.blogspot.com/2012/09/ibesr-meeting.html. The post by ABI states that IBESR will accept new dossiers up until October 31, 2012 and that the new procedures will be enforced starting November 1, 2012.
