Good day,

consider slightly modified p. 16:

The technical content or format of the Certificate *doesn't comply with 
the applicable legislation of Subject's jursidiction or* presents an 
unacceptable risk to Application Software Suppliers or Relying Parties 
(e.g. the CA/Browser Forum might determine that a deprecated 
cryptographic/signature algorithm or key size presents an unacceptable 
risk and that such Certificates should be revoked and replaced by CAs 
within a given period of time).
