Ballot Results for CDV1 Z136.7
Accredited Standards Committee

The ballot to approve the CDV1 for the Z136.7 Testing and Labeling of Laser Protective Eyewear closed Tuesday, 11 June 2019 at 5:00 PM EDT; the public review comment deadline of this same document will close 22 June 2019. Of 32 eligible votes, 29 responses were received (90%) within the published balloting period, which makes this a valid ballot in accordance with Z136 Procedures, Clause 7.9 (a), “Three quarters (75%) of the ballots shall be returned (including abstentions) from those in the Balloting Group in order for the ballot to be valid.”

Of the 29 responses received, 24 votes were affirmative or affirmative with comment (83%). Three votes were negative with reasons, and the final two responses were abstentions, one due to agency/organizational restrictions and one due to lack of expertise. No comments have yet been received from public review; however note that this public review period is still open.

In accordance with ASC Z136 Procedures, an effort to resolve all expressed objections accompanied by comments related to the proposal under consideration shall be made. Each unresolved objection and attempt at resolution, and any substantive change made in a proposed American National Standard shall be circulated to the entire balloting group to allow each member to confirm or change their vote or to comment. All consensus body balloting group (CBBG) members will have the opportunity to respond to the recirculation ballot, including cases where they did not cast an earlier vote or abstained. Per our procedures, Clause 7.5, “During ballot recirculation, a balloter can only change his/her vote based on the changed portions of the proposed standard, or on the unresolved negative comments. A balloter cannot change his/her vote based on a clause previously seen and approved, unless that clause is affected by the new material.” And Clause A.2, “Any new issue or recommended technical change raised during this recirculation should be retained by the Secretariat for consideration during the next maintenance cycle.”

A copy of the summary of consensus body balloting group vote by interest category will be posted in the ASC Z136 - General Area of this web site

New Electronic Ballot Application June 2019
Beginning with the invitation to ballot for Z136.8 CDV1, the Secretariat will begin utilizing a new application for receiving electronic ballots and invitations to ballot. This online application is called eBallot and has been tested by members of the ADCOM.

This application is web-based and does not require any kind of download. Members of ASC Z136 should expect to receive an email invitation soon to participate using eBallot. Each member will receive a unique link to the ballot portal as well as a username and access code; it is not necessary to memorize this username or access code.

As a note, the Z136.7 CDV1 ballot is still being collected via the PDF method until the close of that ballot, so if you are a member of that balloting group, please proceed with the instructions that were originally distributed.

As we transition to the use of this new application, please feel free to send questions and suggestions to Liliana Caldero (lcaldero@lia.org).
