Dear SCI members,


The GNSO Council discussed several issues relating to the SCI at its wrap up
session on Thursday, 18 July at the ICANN meeting in Durban.  See the
transcript at:


In particular, the GNSO Council discussed the SCI Charter, which resulted in
the following actions:

1.	The  GNSO Council agreed that the SCI for now is to be a 'standing
committee' and the charter should be amended accordingly if it is not clear
from the current wording.
2.	On decision-making (full consensus versus Standard Methodology for
Making Decisions), the Council agreed to consider this issue further on the
mailing list and Council members were encouraged to share their views in
support of one or the other with the mailing list (this will be reflected in
the action items). Jeff was also asked to provide in writing his
contribution with regard to why the SCI was initially required to operate
under full consensus.

I have attached for discussion during our call on Tuesday 06 August 2013 at
19:00 UTC for 1 hour (12:00 PST , 15:00 EST,  20:00 London, 21:00 CET) the
version of the charter as it stood prior to the changes suggested by Mikey,
since I think that version reflects the status of the SCI as a 'standing
committee'.  However, if this is not clear in the current version, we can
discuss how to clarify it.  In addition, I will share any discussions
concerning the SCI decision-making process that may subsequently appear on
the GNSO Council list.


In addition, the Council has added two new issues for the SCI to consider: 

1.	Voting: The option of voting by email.
2.	Procedural waiver: Whether a provision / waiver should be included
in the GNSO Operating Procedures that in certain circumstances would
specifically allow the GNSO Council to bypass its procedures (for example in
the case of non-objection). 

If there were SCI members present during the wrap-up session please feel
free to comment on, add to, or amend what I have reported above.


Best regards,



Julie Hedlund, Policy Director
