*IANA Naming Function Review Team Community Webinar

24 September 2020

LOS ANGELES – 21 September 2020 – Today, the Internet Assigned Numbers
Authority (IANA) Naming Function Review Team (IFRT) has announced that it
is in the final stages of completing its Initial Report. The IFRT will be
holding a webinar for the community regarding one of their proposed
recommendations that would require an amendment to the IANA Naming
Functions Contract <https://newsalerts.icann.org/E0d0C0gERb80N02E2300P02>
between the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and
its affiliate Public Technical Identifiers (PTI). This amendment may be of
particular interest to country code top-level domain (ccTLD) and generic
top-level domain (gTLD) registry operators.

Per the ICANN Bylaws <https://newsalerts.icann.org/z0282dP0000RNc32CgF0E00>,
Article 18, Section 18.5.d.(a):

"*The IFRT may recommend, among other things to the extent reasonably
related to the IFR responsibilities set forth in Section 18.3, amendments
to the IANA Naming Function Contract, IANA Naming Function SOW and/or the
CSC Charter. The IFRT shall, at a minimum, take the following steps before
an amendment to either the IANA Naming Function Contract, IANA Naming
Function SOW or CSC Charter is proposed:……(iii) Conduct a public input
session for ccTLD and gTLD registry operators.*"

The IFRT noted that the IANA Naming Functions Contract
<https://newsalerts.icann.org/E0d0C0gERb80N02E2300P02> contains a
requirement relating to the formatting of IANA's monthly Root Operations
Audit Reports <https://newsalerts.icann.org/v0080N3d0dPECgG2R022000> and
this requirement can be considered obsolete. The IFRT therefore recommends

*In Article 7 Section 7.1 (a) the IFRT recommends that this statement "The
relevant policies under which the changes are made shall be noted within
each monthly report" be removed from the contract, as it is a legacy
statement from the NTIA contract that is no longer required.*

The IFRT encourages all interested parties, and in particular ccTLD and
gTLD registry operators, to join the scheduled informational webinar to
learn more.

About IFR

The IANA Naming Functions Review (IFR) is one of the accountability
mechanisms created as part of the IANA stewardship transition to ensure
that ICANN, via its affiliate Public Technical Identifiers (PTI), meets the
needs and expectations of its naming customers.

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global
Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an
address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That
address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN
helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world.
ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation
with a community of participants from all over the world.
About PTI

Public Technical Identifiers (PTI) is an affiliate of ICANN responsible for
performing the IANA functions, which include management of the Domain Name
System root zone, the global Internet Protocol address space and other
protocol parameters that support Internet operation. PTI was formed in 2016
following a transition of stewardship to the multistakeholder community
that relies upon the IANA functions. PTI performs the IANA functions under
contract with ICANN.
