The following motion has been proposed by Dimitris Zacharopoulos of 
HARICA and endorsed by Moudrick M. Dadashov of SSC and Mads Egil 
Henriksveen from Bypass.

*Background*:

Section 3 of the SCWG Charter describes the qualifying criteria for 
"Certificate Issuers" and "Root Certificate Issuers". This ballot 
attempts to remove references to the old ETSI TS documents.

*-- MOTION BEGINS --*

In Section 3 of the SCWG Charter, update the ETSI references:

Replace "ETSI TS 102042, ETSI 101456, or ETSI EN 319 411-1"

with "or ETSI EN 319 411-1".

*-- MOTION ENDS --*

Here is a red-line of these particular changes.

(1) _Certificate Issuer_: The member organization operates a 
certification authority that has a current and successful WebTrust for 
CAs audit, or ETSI TS 102042, ETSI 101456, orETSI EN 319 411-1 audit 
report prepared by a properly-qualified auditor, and that actively 
issues certificates to Web servers that are openly accessible from the 
Internet, such certificates being treated as valid when using a browser 
created by a Certificate Consumer Member. Applicants that are not 
actively issuing certificates but otherwise meet membership criteria may 
be granted Associate Member status under Bylaw Sec. 3.1 for a period of 
time to be designated by the Forum.

(2) _Root Certificate Issuer_: The member organization operates a 
certification authority that has a current and successful WebTrust for 
CAs, or ETSI TS 102042, ETSI TS 101456,ETSI EN 319 411-1 audit report 
prepared by a properly-qualified auditor, and that actively issues 
certificates to subordinate CAs that, in turn, actively issue 
certificates to Web servers that are openly accessible from the 
Internet, such certificates being treated as valid when using a browser 
created by a Certificate Consumer Member. Applicants that are not 
actively issuing certificates but otherwise meet membership criteria may 
be granted Associate Member status under Bylaw Sec. 3.1 for a period of 
time to be designated by the Forum.
