At World Sailing's 2019 Mid-Year Meeting in London, Great Britain, World Sailing's Council voted to retain the Equipment for the Men's and Women's One Person Dinghy for the Paris 2024 Olympic Sailing Competition.

The World Sailing Board informed Council in May 2019 that it would only continue contractual discussions until 1 August 2019 with the selected Equipment.

The International Laser Class Association (ILCA) signed the required Olympic Classes Contract by this deadline and submitted additional information and clarification about the arrangements for the Class.

Following ILCA clarification, the Board recommended to World Sailing's Council to confirm the appointment of the Laser as the Equipment for the Men's and Women's One Person Dinghy under the normal arrangements for an electronic vote.

This was approved by Council (30 in favour, 0 against, 0 abstain - 30 participated).
