Formal title: Changes to Panel Determination Process and Panel Election Procedures
P129 proposes to enable the BSC Panel, where there is a substantial majority agreement, to make decisions to implement or reject Modification Proposals. Only where the hurdle majority has not been reached would the proposal, together with a Panel recommendation, be referred to the Authority for a decision. P129 also suggests amendments to the Panel Election procedures, through the establishment of voting constituencies.
The BSC Panel recommended that the Proposed Modification should not be made. The Authority rejected the Proposed Modification on 24 December 2003.
