Purpose of the Ballot

For Baseline Requirement for the Issuance and Management of Publicly-Trusted Code Signing Certificates v2.3, the purpose is to allow the new WebTrust CSBR 2.0 or later audit scheme. The ballot allows the older WebTrust audits to continue for audit periods which start before 1 November 2020. There is no specific start date for the CSBR 2.0 audit scheme, which allows it also to be used for audit periods starting before 1 November 2021.
