Bylaw Requirements
1. Bylaw 2.3(f) requires:
· A "yes" vote by two-thirds of Certificate Issuer votes and by 50%-plus-one of Certificate Consumer votes. Votes to abstain are not counted for this purpose.
This requirement was MET for Certificate Issuers and MET for Certificate Consumers.
· At least one Certificate Issuer and one Certificate Consumer Member must vote in favor of a ballot for the ballot to be adopted.
This requirement was MET.

2. Bylaw 2.3(g) requires that a ballot result only be considered valid when “more than half of the number of currently active Members has participated”. Votes to abstain are counted in determining quorum. Half of the currently active members at the start of voting was 17.5, so the quorum was 18 for this ballot.
This requirement was MET.

IPR Review Period
This ballot now enters the IP Rights Review Period to permit members to review the ballot for relevant IP rights issues. As this ballot specified a Final Guideline, the IP Rights Review Period extends 60 days from February 22, 2022 00:00 UTC.
