The CA/Browser Forum is not a regulatory body. They publish guidelines but do not set requirements nor regulate compliance. The Forum does not require that members follow the Forum guidelines; it only requires that they are either a browser or CA operator following the basic WebTrust requirements or ETSI requirements. What action would you expect the Forum to be taking?
