I vaguely recall that there was mention made of 
ICANN Org requesting clarification from the EDPB 
on whether such access was allowed (presuming 
honouring of trans-border data issues).  So you 
may wish to include a question about whether 
ICANN Org has or plans to consult the EDPB.

I would include any appliable joint-controller 
agreements, as such an arrangement was one of the 
underlying assumptions in thhe EPDP Phase 2 report (section 3.3).
