Dear Councillors,
Please find the resolutions passed at the GNSO Council meeting today, Wednesday 21 October 2015.

1. Approval of the Data & Metrics Working Group Recommendations (non-PDP)
On 17 October 2012 the GNSO Council requested an Issue Report on metrics and reporting (see http://gnso.icann.org/en/issues/uofr-final-31mar13-en.pdf).
On 16 May 2013 the GNSO Council deliberated a recommendation on the Uniformity of Reporting from the Registration Abuse Policies Working Group (RAPWG) and approved a non-PDP Working Group to consider metrics and reporting:
"The GNSO Council further approves the creation of a drafting team to develop a charter for a non-PDP Working Group to consider additional methods for collecting necessary metrics and reporting from Contracted Parties and other external resources to aid the investigation." (http://gnso.icann.org/en/council/resolutions#20130516-1).
On 23 Jan 2014 the GNSO Council approved the charter for a Data and Metrics for Policy Making Working Group (DMPM WG) (see http://gnso.icann.org/en/council/resolutions#20140123-1).
The Data and Metrics for Policy Making WG (DMPM WG) deliberated the issues as defined in its charter and published an Initial Report for public comment on 29 July 2015 for the required 40 day period (see https://www.icann.org/public-comments/data-metrics-policy-making-2015-07-29-en<mhtml:file://C:\Users\Glen\Documents\Motions+21+October+2015.mht!https://www.icann.org/public-comments/data-metrics-policy-making-2015-07-29-en>).
The DMPM WG reviewed the input received (see public comment review tool) and updated its report accordingly.
On 9 October 2015 the DMPM WG submitted its Final Report<http://gnso.icann.org/en/issues/dmpm-final-09oct15-en.pdf> to the GNSO Council.
The GNSO Council adopts all the consensus recommendations in the Final Report<http://gnso.icann.org/en/issues/dmpm-final-09oct15-en.pdf> and instructs ICANN staff to begin implementation of the seven recommendations.
The GNSO Council thanks the DMPM WG for its efforts and recommends that the WG be formally closed as a result of the adoption by the GNSO Council of the WG's recommendations.
The WG nevertheless requests that the WG remain available to provide input to the GNSO Council and ICANN staff should any questions or issues arise in relation to implementation of its recommendations prior to the formation of an Implementation Review Team.
The GNSO Council requests ICANN staff to prepare an evaluation report for the GNSO Council shortly after the conclusion of implementation of this pilot effort.

2. Process and Participation in CCWG-Accountability


On 13 November 2014 the GNSO approved the charter for a Cross Community Working Group on Enhancing ICANN Accountability (CCWG-Accountability);

On  3 August the Public Comment on the CCWG-Accountability 2ndDraft Proposal was initiated, which ended on 12 September 2015;

The CCWG-Accountability has analyzed the comments received in the review of the 2nd draft and is working toward updating its reference
implementation taking into account the concerns expressed in those comments;

and The CCWG-Accountability  is working in a considered and collegial manner to achieve a consensus solution to ICANN Accountability;


the superb and continuing leadership of CCWG-Accountability by the team which includes the GNSO appointed co-chair Thomas Rickert, to whom we
are grateful for his time and consistent effort;


The GNSO reiterates its support for the process that is ongoing in CCWG-Accountability,

its commitment to participating in continuing discussions with the goal of finding solutions with broad agreement for ICANN accountability in
preparation for IANA transition, and

to working through the process as agreed upon in the charter before declaring support or opposition to possible outcomes.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you.

Kind regards,

Glen de Saint Géry
