[802SEC] IEEE P802.3 (IEEE 802.3dc) Standard for Ethernet revision PAR

Dear Colleagues,

In support of subclause 9.2 'IEEE 802 LMSC Approval' of the LMSC Operations Manual, based on its '48 hour' rule provision, and the concurrence of the standards committee chair as required, please find below the required information in respect to the IEEE P802.3 (IEEE 802.3dc) Standard for Ethernet revision PAR.

Best regards,

[1] Draft PAR and CSD responses:

Draft PAR:
CSD responses: Not required.

[2] Explanatory technical background material:

IEEE Std 802.3-2018 will need to be revised to allow future amendments to be considered per standards board policies. This revision will include the merge of approved amendments and accumulated maintenance changes. As there are a number of amendment projects currently in the "pipeline", it is desirable to complete this revision in a timely manner to provide a solid base for balloting of the projects that will follow. Timely completion of the revision is also desired to avoid delays to these projects. The consequence of these schedule considerations is that new capabilities or functional enhancements may have to be deferred to future projects.

[3] Status of the development of the PAR:

The draft PAR is pending IEEE 802.3 Working Group approval at its closing plenary on Thursday.
