ASO Announces Support for Fundamental Bylaws Amendment to Article 18 of 
the ICANN Bylaws

In its capacity as a Decisional Participant in the Empowered Community, 
the NRO EC (acting as the ASO) has agreed to support the Fundamental 
Bylaws Amendment to Article 18, Section 18.7(b) of the ICANN Bylaws 
relating to the composition of the IANA Naming Functions Review as 
posted by the ICANN Board according to its Resolution 2019.09.08.05.

The ICANN Empowered Community Administration was informed of the ASO’s 
decision on Wednesday 27 November 2019.

Process

In accordance with its role as a Decisional Participant in the Empowered 
Community, the NRO reviewed the proposed change and concluded that this 
ICANN Bylaws change would not impact the Internet Number community and 
allows ICANN to remain accountable to its Bylaws-mandated mechanisms.

As per Article 3 of the ASO Procedures for ICANN Empowered Community 
Powers, the RIR communities were informed and asked for feedback. No 
feedback was received.

As per Article 5 of the procedures, the NRO EC subsequently held a 
teleconference on 26 November, during which the NRO EC determined 
whether to support, reject or abstain from approving the Bylaw Change.
