-<h2 id="s3"> 3. Policies </h2>
-
-<h3 id="s3.1"> 3.1 Policy </h3>
-
-<p>
-There is one policy being this present document,
-and several subsidiary policies.
-</p>
-
-<ol type="a">
- <li> This policy authorises the creation of subsidiary policies. </li>
- <li> This policy is international. </li>
- <li> Subsidiary policies are implementations of the policy. </li>
- <li> Organisations are assured under an appropriate subsidiary policy. </li>
-</ol>
-
-<h3 id="s3.2"> 3.2 Subsidiary Policies </h3>
-
-<p>
-The nature of the Subsidiary Policies ("SubPols"):
-</p>
-
-<ol type="a"><li>
- SubPols are purposed to check the organisation
- under the rules of the jurisdiction that creates the
- organisation. This does not evidence an intention
- by CAcert to
- enter into the local jurisdiction, nor an intention
- to impose the rules of that jurisdiction over any other
- organisation.
- CAcert assurances are conducted under the jurisdiction
- of CAcert.
- </li><li>
- For OAs,
- SubPol specifies the <i>tests of local knowledge</i>
- including the local organisation assurance COAP forms.
- </li><li>
- For assurances,
- SubPol specifies the <i>local documentation forms</i>
- which are acceptable under this SubPol to meet the
- standard.
- </li><li>
- SubPols are subjected to the normal
- policy approval process.
-</li></ol>
-
-<h3 id="s3.3"> 3.3 Freedom to Assemble </h3>
-
-<p>
-Subsidiary Policies are open, accessible and free to enter.
-</p>
-
-<ol type="a"><li>
- SubPols compete but are compatible.
- </li><li>
- No SubPol is a franchise.
- </li><li>
- Many will be on State or National lines,
- reflecting the legal
- tradition of organisations created
- ("incorporated") by states.
- </li><li>
- However, there is no need for strict national lines;
- it is possible to have 2 SubPols in one country, or one
- covering several countries with the same language
- (e.g., Austria with Germany, England with Wales but not Scotland).
- </li><li>
- There could also be SubPols for special
- organisations, one person organisations,
- UN agencies, churches, etc.
- </li><li>
- Where it is appropriate to use the SubPol
- in another situation (another country?), it
- can be so approved.
- (e.g., Austrian SubPol might be approved for Germany.)
- The SubPol must record this approval.
-</li></ol>
-
-
-<h2 id="s4"> 4. Process </h2>
-
-<h3 id="s4.1"> 4.1 Standard of Organisation Assurance </h3>
-<p>
-The essential standard of Organisation Assurance is:
-</p>
-
-<ol type="a"><li>
- the organisation exists
- </li><li>
- the organisation name is correct and consistent:
- <ol type="i">
- <li>in official documents specified in SubPol.</li>
- <li>on COAP form.</li>
- <li>in CAcert database.</li>
- <li>form or type of legal entity is consistent</li>
- </ol>
- </li><li>
- signing rights:
- requestor can sign on behalf of the organisation.
- </li><li>
- the organisation has agreed to the terms of the
- CAcert Community Agreement
- and is therefore subject to Arbitration.
-</li></ol>
-
-<p>
- Acceptable documents to meet above standard
- are stated in the SubPol.
-</p>
-
-<h3 id="s4.2"> 4.2 COAP </h3>
-<p>
-The COAP form documents the checks and the resultant
-assurance results to meet the standard.
-Additional information to be provided on form:
-</p>
-
-<ol type="a"><li>
- CAcert account of O-Admin (email address?)
- </li><li>
- location:
- <ol type="i">
- <li>country (MUST).</li>
- <li>city (MUST).</li>
- <li>additional contact information (as required by SubPol).</li>
- </ol>
- </li><li>
- administrator account name(s) (1 or more)
- </li><li>
- domain name(s)
- </li><li>
- Agreement with
- CAcert Community Agreement.
- Statement and initials box for organisation
- and also for OA.
- </li><li>
- Date of completion of Assurance.
- Records should be maintained for 7 years from
- this date.
-</li></ol>
-
-<p>
-The COAP should be in English. Where translations
-are provided, they should be matched to the English,
-and indication provided that the English is the
-ruling language (due to Arbitration requirements).
-</p>
-
-<h3 id="s4.3"> 4.3 Jurisdiction </h3>
-
-<p>
-Organisation Assurances are carried out by
-CAcert Inc. under its Arbitration jurisdiction.
-Actions carried out by OAs are under this regime.
-</p>
-
-<ol type="a"><li>
- The organisation has agreed to the terms of the
- CAcert Community Agreement.
- </li><li>
- The organisation, the Organisation Assurers, CAcert and
- other related parties are bound into CAcert's jurisdiction
- and dispute resolution.
- </li><li>
- The OA is responsible for ensuring that the
- organisation reads, understands, intends and
- agrees to the
- CAcert Community Agreement.
- This OA responsibility should be recorded on COAP
- (statement and initials box).
-</li></ol>
-
-<h2 id="s5"> 5. Exceptions </h2>
-
-
-<ol type="a"><li>
- <b> Conflicts of Interest.</b>
- An OA must not assure an organisation in which
- there is a close or direct relationship by, e.g.,
- employment, family, financial interests.
- Other conflicts of interest must be disclosed.
- </li><li>
- <b> Trusted Third Parties.</b>
- TTPs are not generally approved to be part of
- organisation assurance,
- but may be approved by subsidiary policies according
- to local needs.
- </li><li>
- <b>Exceptional Organisations.</b>
- (e.g., Vatican, International Space Station, United Nations)
- can be dealt with as a single-organisation
- SubPol.
- The OA creates the checks, documents them,
- and subjects them to to normal policy approval.
- </li><li>
- <b>DBA.</b>
- Alternative names for organisations
- (DBA, "doing business as")
- can be added as long as they are proven independently.
- E.g., registration as DBA or holding of registered trade mark.
- This means that the anglo law tradition of unregistered DBAs
- is not accepted without further proof.
