[802SEC] Chair's policy Interpretation of LMSC OM 9.2 IEEE 802 LMSC [PAR] approval
Dear EC Members,
Chair's policy Interpretation of LMSC OM 9.2 IEEE 802 LMSC [PAR] approval, considering LMSC OM 9.3 Plenary review and LMSC P&P 2.0 Responsibilities of the Sponsor and 6.0 Meetings:
Per LMSC OM Subclause 9.2, PARs for ordinary items and PAR changes essential to the orderly conduct of business may be placed on the Sponsor agenda with 48 hours notice, at the discretion of the Sponsor Chair. Such PARs are not "PARs for significant new work" hence are exempt from 9.3 Plenary review.
The text does not limit the type of meeting at which the Sponsor agenda is addressed. Therefore, it is the LMSC Chair's interpretation that PARs for ordinary items and PAR changes essential to the orderly conduct of business may, with 48 hours notice and at the discretion of the Sponsor Chair, be placed on agenda of any duly noticed Sponsor meeting per LMSC P&P 6.0 Meetings, e.g., Sponsor electronic meetings."
p.s. Relevant Policy Language:
