Before a new Working Group is formed, it must first be established as a BoF for a period of one year after its formation to ensure that there is sufficient demand and benefit for the activity to become a Working Group. A Charter and proposed membership of the BoF should be prepared for consideration of Council. Council will review the operation of the BoF and any revision of its charter, after one year of its formation and determine whether it should become a Working Group

The formation of Working Groups and Areas shall be endorsed by the Council of Primary Members.
