Dear Certification Authority,
Mozilla’s Root Store Policy was recently updated to [[version 2.7.1|]] with an effective date of 1 May 2021. This version contains [ several changes] that may affect your organization and the audits you receive from your auditors. These changesy require you to take action to ensure your continued compliance.
Please review version 2.7.1 of [ Mozilla’s Root Store Policy] internally, and with your auditors as well. After you and your auditors have reviewed these new requirements, complete the April 2021 survey via the Common CA Database (CCADB). This survey also contains information regarding other recent and upcoming changes that may affect your Certification Authority (CA).
To respond to this survey, [ log in to the CCADB], click on the 'CA Communications (Page)' tab, and select the 'April 2021 CA Communication' survey. All CAs with root certificates included in Mozilla’s root store must submit their responses by 30-April-2021.
<br>A compiled list of CA responses to the survey will be [ automatically and immediately published] by the CCADB system.
Participation in Mozilla's CA Certificate Program is at our sole discretion, and we will take whatever steps are necessary to keep our users safe. Nevertheless, we believe that the best approach to safeguard that security is to work with CAs as partners, to foster open and frank communication, and to be diligent in looking for ways to improve. Thank you for your cooperation in this pursuit.
