Re: [802SEC] Information for the 802 EC
In this instance, it is not our (the IEEE volunteers) responsibility to
enforce an action the IEEE believes should be taken, it is the IEEE's
staff responsibility. I wouldn't spend any more time on it, let the
IEEE staff handle it directly.

Dear EC members,
Further to the email below I've been working with Yvette to establish
the process to use within IEEE 802.3, and its subgroups, to support the
goal of obtaining a written acknowledgment from every individual
participant employer by and/or affiliated with ZTE in respect to the
bylaws requirements for individual participation.
I wanted to share this with everybody as you may want to institute a
process within your groups as well.
The IEEE-SA has already reached out to all individual participants that
they know of employed and/or affiliated with ZTE to obtain written
acknowledgment in respect to the bylaws requirements for individual
participation. Based on this a list of individuals that have provided
this written acknowledgment is being generated, and access to the list
will be made available to Working Group Chairs shortly.
As IEEE 802.3 Working Group Chair I will verify the names of IEEE 802.3
participant employer by and/or affiliated with ZTE against the list and
will inform Yvette of any participating that are not on the list. Once
I have informed Yvette of an individual missing from the list I do not
need to inform her again, even if that individual continues to
participate without being added to the list.
To achieve the above I will be asking all IEEE 802.3 Subgroup Chairs to
inform me of the participation of anyone employer by and/or affiliated
with ZTE in their face to face and teleconference meetings.

IEEE standards development has projects that are conducted using either
the individual process or the entity process. In the individual
process, all participants represent themselves as individuals, and do
not represent any entity. As noted in subclause 5.2.1 of the IEEE-SA
Standards Board Bylaws
"Participants in the IEEE standards development individual process
shall act based on their qualifications and experience. Entity
representative participants in the IEEE standards development entity
process are appointed by an entity to represent that entity and act on
its behalf. Such representatives may participate in IEEE standards
development activities and take action based upon instruction from the
entity for which they have been appointed as an entity representative."
As such, in the individual process, the participant is not to be
directed by their affiliation, and must act based on their own
qualifications and experience. In the entity process, the
representative is appointed by the entity to represent that entity and
act on its behalf.
The US Department of Commerce has issued a denial order against ZTE
Participants in the individual process cannot represent any entity, and
must represent themselves only as individuals with their own
qualifications and experiences. In that instance, those individuals are
permitted to participate in the individual standards development
process as individuals participating in an open meeting for the purpose
of development and publication of consensus standards.
Participants who are employed by or who declare an affiliation with ZTE
will be asked to confirm their understanding of and compliance with the
IEEE-SA Standards Board Bylaws pertaining to their participation in the
IEEE individual process. If you need to verify this confirmation,
please contact me.
Some Sponsors issue invitation letters for visas. IEEE is suspending
the issuance of these letters until it confirms the appropriate
compliance with the Order. As soon as we have an update, we will inform
