[IOT] FW: CCWG-Accountability-WS2-IRPIOT-PublicConsultation1--Responses Draft summary and comments to facilitate your work

Dear members of the IRP IOT:

Reminder – we have a call scheduled next Thursday, March 2nd, at 13:00 UTC.

This will be an important call as we are moving into substantive consideration of the comments received during the public comment period. The comments can be accessed here: https://forum.icann.org/lists/comments-irp-supp-procedures-28nov16/

I am also urging members to pick an issue (and let us know on list which issue) that you can take the lead on helping us consider and decide how to respond to the comment/subject. Malcolm is kindly taking the “timing of claims” issue and I will take the joinder and other issues raised by Kathy Kleiman in her comment of Jan. 31st.

There are valuable tools to help in this process included in the e-mail forwarded below.

We need to amp up our efforts from now until the end of March – the due date for the staff report on our work on these comments is March 29 – and many of us will be occupied during ICANN58. Bernie and staff will need a week to get the report prepped and posted based on our work.

Once we complete the rules our work will become largely (although not only) advisory in nature so please help us get this rules-based work done in March.

Best wishes,


David McAuley

International Policy Manager

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [IOT] CCWG-Accountability-WS2-IRPIOT-PublicConsultation1--Responses Draft summary and comments to facilitate your work

All IOT participants,

Per David McAuley's request please find the following documents attached to this email to facilitate you analysis of the public comments on Updated Supplementary Procedures for Independent Review Process (IRP):

The URL for the public consultation is: https://www.icann.org/public-comments/irp-supp-procedures-2016-11-28-en

These include all comments as of the sending of this email (22 comments by 19 commenters - 2 commenters posted more than one comment)

First please find attached all the comments regrouped into one PDF file named CCWG-Accountability-WS2-IRPIOT-PublicConsultation1-Responses-PDFConpendium.

Next please find attached and Excel spread sheet named CCWG-Accountability-WS2-IRPIOT-PublicConsultation1-Responses-AnalysisV1.1BT

​I have produced this after going over all the comments. The first column is a list of commenters (19) and columns C to Z are the issues that were brought up in the comments regrouped into logical subsets where possible. These are:

*       12 Month limit - 13
*       45 days - 11
*       Types of hearings - 5
*       Consolidation, Intervention and Joinder - 5
*       Translation and Interpretation- 4
*       Discovery, evidence, statements - 4
*       Applied Retroactively to all Pending - 3
*       Panel Conflic of Interest - 3
*       Notice - 2
*       Rewriting Consensus Policy - 2
*       Standing - Materially Affected - 2
*       Other

​These are ranked by the number of comments for the issue (of the 19 commenters 13 commented on the 12 month limit, 11 on the 45 day limit etc.). Issues that had only 1 comment were grouped under Other.

The entries in the cells are, for the most part, extracted quotes from the comments received, which to my mind represented the core of the comment on this issue including recommendations. This is not meant to replace the original comments but simply facilitate identifying issues and trends. Everyone should read the original submissions which are included with this email.

Most comments were thoughtful and well articulated and focused on presenting issues. A number claim that certain proposed USP rules are incoherent with the Bylaws, providing references to support their claim, as well as providing alternative language for some of the recommendations.

​For those who prefer to print things out, or cannot use the Excel sheet, I have provided a printable PDF version of the spreadsheet in the file: CCWG-Accountability-WS2-IRPIOT-PublicConsultation1-Responses-Analysis-=PrintableVersion. Please note that if you are printing use LANDSCAPE LETTER or A4 but that it will run about 52 pages.

If you have any questions or issues with these documents please feel free to contact me.

Have a good weekend and I look forward to our meeting next week.
