Results of the EPIC Agreement Ballot


Results of the EPIC Agreement Ballot

Members of IDNIYRA in North America and Europe recently received postal ballot concerning approval of the EPIC and Regatta Management Agreements, and deletion of the current Specifications Management System (SMS), because the EPIC and Regatta management Agreements would replace the SMS. Ballots closed on Novembers 29th and on November 30th the Executive Secretaries in North America and Europe organized the counting of ballots.

One hundred and fourteen ballots were received (51 in Europe and 63 in North America), of which 112 supported adoption of the EPIC and Regatta Management Agreements and deletion of the current Specifications Management System. Consequently, the EPIC and Regatta management Agreements are now in force and will be published in the upcoming IDNIYRA Yearbook. Adoption of the EPIC and Regatta Management Agreements also means that all future ballots of IDNIYRA members will be conducted electronically.
