Objet : Update on Timeline for Chartering Org Approval of WS1 

Dear all,

Yesterday, the co-Chairs issued a 
formal statement updating the community on the status of the Work Stream 1 
Recommendations and providing insight into the steps the CCWG-Accountability 
will be taking in developing the supplemental draft.

Our hope is that the majority of changes from the Third Draft Report will 
relate to specificities of implementation rather than content, and as such, 
an additional public comment period will not be necessary before approval by 
the Chartering Organizations.

In light of progress made and in assessing the outstanding issues, we have 
announced a target to distribute the supplemental report to our Chartering 
Organizations in time for consideration and approval on all Work Stream 1 
Recommendations during ICANN55 in Marrakech.

The various SOs and ACs approach their work and schedules differently and we 
are respectfully asking that you take this into account as you plan your 
discussions before and during ICANN55.

With that said, we encourage any Chartering Organizations that can 
deliberate and/or approve the Work Stream 1 Recommendations prior to 
Marrakech to please do so.

We are grateful for your input on the Third Draft Report and for your 
continued engagement in the development of the revised Work Stream 1 
Recommendations. We hope to continue this open dialogue as the supplemental 
report is finalized, and we are also hoping that all potential issues have 
been raised to the CCWG-Accountability so they can be mitigated in our 
revisions. Our objective is to provide the Chartering Organizations a simple 
and straightforward approval process.

Following approval from the Chartering Organizations, we have asked the 
ICANN Board to be mindful of the timeline as they plan their review period 
of the Work Stream 1 Recommendations and submission to NTIA.

We have seen increased involvement from the ICANN Board as our work 
progressed since the Third Draft Report. By enabling us to understand Board 
comments in real-time, the following potential global public interest 
concerns stemming from the Board’s comments in December, have been 

*	Inspection rights have been fully addressed.
*	Budget process concerns have been fully addressed.
*	Work Stream 2 concerns have been fully addressed.
*	Human rights concerns have been discussed and the group has adjusted its 
recommendation, however Board concerns still exist.
*	Concerns on ICANN’s Mission are still being discussed.

As always, please not hesitate to reach out to us should you have any 
questions or concerns.

Best regards,

Mathieu, Thomas, León
