- IEEE 802 Policies & Procedures
- Highlights: "It is expected that the work effort to develop a PAR will originate in an ECSG or WGSG... A study group is expected to submit a PAR to the EC for consideration by the 2nd plenary session after its initiation... The decision of whether to utilize an existing WG, or to establish a new WG to carry out recommended work items shall be made by the EC with due consideration of advice from the Study Group."
- IEEE 802 Operations Manual
- Highlights: "Study Groups may elect officers other than the Chair, if necessary, and will follow the general operating procedures for WGs specified in the IEEE 802 LMSC WG P&P. Because of the limited time duration of a Study Group, no letter ballots are permitted... Any person attending a Study Group meeting may vote on all motions (including recommending approval of a PAR). A vote is carried by 75% of those present and voting 'Approve' or 'Disapprove'."
