17 members of APAN are distributed among 17 Asian (and Oceania) countries/economies
Only one organization per country/economies can be the Primary APAN member, and must represent all the legitimate interests of the country/economies in the objectives of APAN
A number of countries/economies have more than one REN (eg Japan, Korea, China) and are represented by an umbrella organization (eg APAN-JP)
Populations and Time-zones
The combined populations of the APAN member nations represent ~60% of the world’s total - most in a timezone range spanning only 4 hours
Discussion regarding incorprporation of APAN has been going on for some time
The TEIN2 and TEIN3 initiatives, and more specifically, the requirement for the operation and management of TEIN3 to be transferred from a European based organisation (DANTE) to an Asian based one (TBD) before the end of TEIN3 has led to a decision being made at APAN 26 to proceed with the Incorporation of APAN, with a view to APAN taking on the responsibility for the operation and management of the final stages of TEIN3, and its successor.
The registration of “Asia Pacific Advanced Network Limited” was finalised on August 3, 2009
The minimum changes possible to avoid complications with the IRD and Regulators for the Articles of Association and for the Memorandum of Association has been made.
The House Rules is based on the current By-laws.
The M&A refer to only two types of Members: Voting Members (ie Primary Members) and non-Voting Members (all other Member categories)
The House rules refer to all current Membership types
