Please note that updates to the IEEE-SA Patent Policy (Clause 6 of the IEEE-SA Standards Board Bylaws) will become effective on 15 March 2015. See, which shows the text of Clause 6 of the IEEE-SA Standards Board Bylaws as it will appear once the patent policy updates are enacted.


Please also see the 'IEEE Statement Regarding Updating of its Standards-Related Patent Policy' at


You should be aware that the conduct and responsibilities of participants within IEEE standards development groups, including the Call for Patents process (as discussed in IEEE-SA Standards Board Operations Manual 6.3.2 [see]) and the Antitrust and Competition Policy [see], have not been updated. This means that the normal practice for conducting working group (standards development) meetings has not changed.


There are various patent materials available from The necessary items will be updated. I will send another communication to you on (or just after) the effective date of the patent policy updates, to let you know which items on the patent materials web page have been updated.


If you have any questions, please address them to
