[802SEC] From IEEE SA SB By-Laws

As mentioned on Monday evening:

IEEE-SA Standards Board Bylaws Sponsor balloting group

Potential dominance in sponsor ballots as evidenced by an unduly high proportion of individuals from a single firm and/or organization or from a particular balloting classification is unacceptable, counter to open and fair participation by all interested parties, and deprecated by the IEEE-SA Standards Board.

IEEE Technical Committees, whose membership is normally constituted by IEEE members, may function as the sponsor balloting group. In any case, the balloting group shall consist of persons who are members of the IEEE-SA and non-IEEE-SA members. A person is an individual; proprietorship; partnership; corporation; association; federal, state, provincial, or local government agency; or some other relevant entity (as approved by the IEEE-SA Standards Board on a case-by-case basis). In addition, with the approval of the IEEE-SA Standards Board, invited individual experts who are non-IEEE-SA members may participate in ballots of proposed IEEE standards.

A single type of balloting group for a standard, based on the type of sponsorship, shall be established at the time of PAR approval and officially approved prior to the formation of a balloting group.
A statement of the type of balloting membership to be used shall be included in all versions of the draft standard and the final approved standard.
