Hi Kelvin/Jeremy,

We’ve had some difficulty locating English language regulations for the
discussion but hopefully this addresses the point in more detail.  The basic
idea is that TSA services should ideally be consistent in that we can use
the same services across multiple areas.  i.e. not to have one for EV Code
Signing, Another for AATL signing another for XXX etc.

As the TSA has to be a minimum of 10 years and as the recommendation in BR
Code Signing is to cycle every 15 months then the maximum duration for any
TSA cert must be 135 months.

Thanks for any feedback.   I hope this is acceptable as I can’t see why the
other current EV maximum was chosen, then I’m happy to make some text
suggestions and amendments.
