In March 2017 The CABForum voted to make it mandatory for CA's to perform CAA checks before issuing certificates. This new regulation goes active in a few days, on September 8. A CAA, Certificate Authority Authentication, allows the end client to restrict which CA's they consider trustworthy and is enforced as a means to increase security in certificates.
As of the 6.9.0 release of EJBCA Enterprise it is possible to perform CAA checks during or after certifiacte issuance. This means that any CA running the latest version of EJBCA Enterprise now can comply with the regulations set by the CABForum.
