The Board also agreed to incorporate the following rules into the Board
"6.4 ETSI members can ask for an invitation to attend Board meetings
as Observers. Interested members should make their request to the Chairman
three weeks before the Board meeting is scheduled.
The number of Observers invited to Board meetings will normally be limited to five. Depending on the Board meeting location, the Chairman of the Board may have to consider the local environment when determining the number of Observers invited. ETSI Members already represented through a Board Member are not expected to send Observers to Board meetings. The request to attend Board meetings is honoured on a first-come, first-served basis. Observers which have attended a Board meeting will receive a lower priority when considering the requests for observing subsequent Board meetings. Observers do not normally actively participate in Board meetings. Observers shall not make ongoing Board discussions public.
The names of the Observers shall be indicated to the Board in advance of the meeting.
6.5 Observers can be requested by the Chairman of the Board to leave the meeting temporarily in the case where the Board handles confidential or personal matters."
