Laser Class Changes

Thread starter #1
What is the official process in changing a Laser class rule. It seems that it has something to do with the builder, but it also has to do with with how the class organization is set up. How does it happen?

It's quite simple. The procedure is defined in Rule 29.

29. AMENDMENTS
Amendments to these Rules shall be approved by each of:
(a) the World Council
(b) the Advisory Council
(c) at least two thirds of the membership replying in writing to the International Office of the Class in response to a postal ballot published by the International Office of the Class. Only those postal votes returned to the International Office within 6 months from the date of publication of the rule change shall be valid, and
(d) the ISAF


As for the question of builders' involvement, as far as I can tell from the International Laser Class Association website, the builders representatives are 50% of the Advisory Council and a minority on the World Council.
