*Consolidation Sub Team members*

*Agenda for Tuesday 18 January 2022, meeting 18:30 UTC*

1.      Review of agenda.

2.      Continue with review items for consideration arising out of 23
November call

4.      Review and discussion of the updated version Rule 7 mark up

5.      Next meeting – Tuesday 1 February 1700 UTC.

*Notes from 23 November call*

The following items arose during our last call on 23 November and require
further consideration from the Sub Team:

   - Whether the request for consolidation/intervention/participation as
   amicus should in fact be heard by the full panel, once appointed, rather
   than a single interim panellist appointed for this purpose – some public
   comment input to this effect.  Considerations:
      - Typically 1-2 months to seat full panel, so potential delay in
      dealing with such requests - would this timing work, particularly for
      consolidation where two IRPs are proceeding in parallel?
      - Joining party (consolidation/intervention) would not have input on
      panel selection – is the trade-off they make for joining another
      - Would an alternative be to retain single panelist decision-making,
      but allow them to confer with full Standing Panel?

*Update 8 December*: support on the call for having these applications
considered by the full panel; edits to Rule 7 (attached) to reflect

   - The role of the Supporting Organisation, e.g. GNSO,  in proceedings
   where their policy is being challenged:
      - under Interim Rules they join as a Claimant but, presumably, they
      actually are opposed to the initial Claimant’s position.
      - Should they be an amicus?

*Update 8 December*: support on call for SO participation as “cross
claimant”, “opponent claimant” or similar; Query – what rights should SO
have that would not be delivered by making them an amicus?

   - Do we need a mechanism to hold amicus participants accountable:
      - On last call, we seemed to favour making this at the discretion of
      the panel, and to add some explicit language to this effect
