Bylaws Requirements

1.      Bylaw 2.3(f) requires:

   0.   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.
   1.   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”. The number of currently active Voting Members is the average number of Voting Member organizations that have participated in the previous three meetings. Votes to abstain are counted in determining quorum. Half of the currently active Voting Members at the start of voting was 9, so the quorum was 10 for this ballot. This requirement was MET.

This ballot now enters the 60-day IP Rights Review Period to permit members to review the ballot for relevant IP rights issues.  The IP Rights Review Period ends at 2359 UTC on January 1, 2023.
