IANA Stewardship Transition

NEWS: On 19 December 2014, the first draft of an Internet numbers community proposal on IANA stewardship was published by the Consolidated RIR IANA Stewardship Proposal (CRISP) team.

This first draft is available here:

 

Feedback on this draft is sought from the RIPE community, either via the ianaxfer _at_ nro _dot_ net mailing list or the RIPE Cooperation Working Group mailing list. The deadline for feedback on this draft is Monday 5 January 2015. The CRISP team will then produce a further draft by 8 January, which will be open for final feedback from the communities before submission to the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG) by 15 January.

 


RIPE Community IANA Stewardship Principles

The RIPE community asks its selected CRISP team representatives to work with the other RIRs to produce a common proposal for a legally binding agreement (such as a Service Level Agreement) between ICANN and the RIRs to replace the Internet number-related elements of the ICANN-NTIA agreement.

This proposal should meet the requirements of the Request For Proposals (RFP) produced by the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG).

The proposal should bring the provisions of the agreement related to the services and service levels up-to-date with current requirements where necessary.

This work should be coordinated with the other users of the IANA function as much as practical, with the aim of producing a proposed arrangement that is compatible with the proposed arrangements of the other IANA users.

The RIPE community asks its CRISP team representatives to keep it informed about progress and content of the proposal.

The RIPE community asks the CRISP team to complete the proposal and to submit it to the ICG before 15 January 2015.

Changes to the policy-making structures or processes relating to the IANA registries are not within the scope of the IANA stewardship discussion.
