Ballot 56 – QGIS Contact Information (Passed Unanimously)

Motion

Ryan Koski made the following motion, and Moudrick Dadashov and Ben Wilson endorsed it:


Motion begins


Based on the current EV Guidelines, in order to verify the legal existence and identity of the Applicant in the cases of Private Organizations (10.2.2.(1)) and Business Entities (10.2.2.(3)), the contact information for the QGIS (or QTIS in the case of Business Entities) must be verified via a QIIS. In certain jurisdictions, locating a correct and authoritative answer from a QIIS is proving difficult. This proposal permits the QGIS to be contacted based on information provided directly by the QGIS (such as via the QGIS’s own web site). Note that using contact information obtained directly from the QGIS is already permitted when verifying legal existence and identity of an Assumed Name (10.3.2).

It is difficult to see how contact information for a QGIS that is provided by a QIIS would be considered more authoritative than contact information found directly on the QGIS’s own web site.

Effective immediately,
