Dear Task Force Participants,
With this e-mail, I'd like to announce the start of the IEEE P802.3cr/D2.0 Isolation (Maintenance #14) Working Group initial ballot.
Open date: Friday 22nd November 2019
Close date: Sunday 22nd December 2019 23:59 AOE
As stated in the attached announcement, the ballot group for this draft is the IEEE 802.3 voting membership as of Friday 22nd November 2019. All comments received before the close of ballot will be considered, the one limitation however is that if you are not a member of the balloting group, and therefore cannot cast a ballot, you cannot designate comments as TR or ER since you cannot cast a Disapprove ballot.
Chair, IEEE P802.3cr Isolation (Maintenance #14)

The Project Authorization Request for this Amendment is available at <http://www.ieee802.org/3/cr/P802.3cr_PAR.pdf> and includes the following:
Standard for Ethernet Amendment: Maintenance #14: Isolation
SCOPE OF PROJECT:
Replace references to the IEC 60950 series of standards (including IEC 60950-1 "Information technology equipment - Safety - Part 1: General requirements") with appropriate references to the IEC 62368 "Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment" series and make appropriate changes to the standard corresponding to the new references.
NEED FOR THE PROJECT:
There are subclauses titled "Electrical isolation" throughout IEEE Std 802.3 requiring isolation meet one of three electrical strength tests with references to the IEC 60950 "Information technology equipment - Safety" series. IEC 60950, however, has been replaced by the IEC 62368 "Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment" series and therefore an update to all isolation material in IEEE Std 802.3 is required.
Thank you for your participation in this ballot and careful review of the draft.
