    These rules were approved in July 1993 by the AESSC but are subject to revisions and additions. Clause 17 on Stabilized Documents was added following a ballot of the AESSC on 2007-07-17. Clause 13 on Supporting Contributors was amended following a ballot of the AESSC on 2013-01-31.

    A general revision, approved following a ballot of the AESSC on 2014-04-08, updated the document to recognise the use of the AESSC web site and email reflectors, and to make clause numbering more helpful. In addition, clause 9 was substantially revised to clarify the AES patent policy, and new clauses were added to clarify our working language (12.0), and code of conduct (12.3).
