Dear All,

There is an open question in the ICANN draft bylaws relating to IFRT-recommended amendments to the IANA Naming Function Contract, SOW and the CSC Charter (Section 18.6(a)(i)).  ICANN had requested a consultation right on amendments to the Contract and SOW since it is a party to the Contract.  On the CWG call, there was a comment on whether the consultation right for the ICANN board was appropriate.   The CWG proposal does not contemplate an ICANN consultation right.

Paragraph 272 of the CWG proposal states:

272               The review could identify recommended amendments to the IANA SOW to address any performance deficiencies, or to the CSC charter to address any issues or deficiencies. The process of developing and approving amendments will take place through a defined process that includes, at minimum, the following steps, in advance of an amendment to either document being proposed:

›        Consultation with the IANA Functions Operator;

›        Consultation with the CSC;

›        Public input session for ccTLD and gTLD operators; and

›        Public comment period.

Best regards,
