Re: [802SEC] Regulatory Standing Committee
I am missing something here. A TAG is a group that
provides a forum for cross Working Group discussions. Witness 19 (in its
early form) and 24 (in its current form for IoT and Smartgrid) in
addition to 18. So the plan is to disband a group that provides a
forum for cross Working Group discussions and start a group that provides
a forum for cross Working Group discussions. Likewise, establishing a
regular schedule for the Standing Committee (SC) during plenaries
provides a structure for interaction with WGs. As an EC SC, the meetings
would be open to all participants. That is exactly what we already have
now with a published agenda from the current TAGs and whose meeting are
open to all 802 attendees. Likewise I get a report out from 18 and 24 at
my closing plenary.
I am confused as to why this needed and how it differs from what we have
other than in name. And if this structure makes more sense then why are
we not disbanding all the TAGs and replacing them with SCs.. Like I said
at the outset, I feel like I missing something to make sense of

Having had time to think about this and discuss it with some of you, Id
like to propose disbanding 802.18 and forming a Regulatory Standing
Committee. This would provide a forum for cross Working Group discussions
of regulatory matters to coordinate Working Group interaction with
regulatory organizations. It would be consistent with the way we handle
other external relationships (e.g. standing committees for IETF and

Monday: The Regulatory SC Chair would prepare a list of items to address
for an opening report on Monday and be available to attend opening
plenaries of WGs to raise any issues.
Tuesday: The Standing Committee would meet in the AM1 slot to discuss any
issues and plan for the week. AM2 and PM1 could be used if further time
is needed to focus on specific topics.
Wednesday: No formal meetings time to work on drafting documents based on
the input from the Tuesday meeting(s)
Thursday morning: Meet in AM1 to complete editing.
Thursday PM and Friday AM: Regulatory SC Chair attends WG closing
sessions to report on activity during the week and make motions on
Friday PM: Regulatory SC Chair reports at the closing EC meeting and EC
votes on outgoing IEEE 802 regulatory communications.
