On 10 March 2016, the ICANN Board transmitted to the U.S. National Telecommunications and Information Agency (NTIA) a package of proposals [icann.org]<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.icann.org_en_system_files_files_iana-2Dstewardship-2Dtransition-2Dpackage-2D10mar16-2Den.pdf&d=DwMFaQ&c=FmY1u3PJp6wrcrwll3mSVzgfkbPSS6sJms7xcl4I5cM&r=PF9VKOo4nYMGLTtWcHZZreauv03rE96xienOw4tThw4&m=vZHBJiLrXYcPqEDGdjIma9Q6O0eAbA9D1YDF-t_Ype8&s=zhEff0daH0kWHBeU3Q1LzDMK9wzLCA9webwgXhA1Zzc&e=> developed by the international Internet community to transition NTIA’s stewardship of the IANA functions to the global multistakeholder community.

One of the things that this package calls for is the creation of a Customer Standing Committee (CSC) to provide operational oversight of the performance of the IANA naming function, a role currently performed by NTIA. The scope and responsibility of the CSC is available here [icann.org]<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.icann.org_iana-5Fimp-5Fdocs_43-2Dcsc-2Dscope-2Dand-2Dresponsibilities-2Dv-2Dv2&d=DwMFaQ&c=FmY1u3PJp6wrcrwll3mSVzgfkbPSS6sJms7xcl4I5cM&r=PF9VKOo4nYMGLTtWcHZZreauv03rE96xienOw4tThw4&m=vZHBJiLrXYcPqEDGdjIma9Q6O0eAbA9D1YDF-t_Ype8&s=2m5FFyaT3j8VPMTlT5s6Voo4g1FJ91l7a9TorMCkXCU&e=>.

The membership composition of the CSC, as specified in the package of proposals, includes one Liaison appointed by the At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) who was to serve an inaugural three-year term. With the resignation of the ALAC Liaison, a mid-term replacement is now being sought to serve until 1 October 2019.

Liaisons shall not be members or be entitled to vote on the CSC, but otherwise shall be entitled to participate on equal footing with members of the CSC. Participation in the CSC is voluntary. The CSC is expected to perform the majority of its work telephonically and via email. Travel funding will not be provided.


The CSC ensures the satisfactory performance of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) naming function.

The CSC is responsible for monitoring Public Technical Identifier’s (PTI) performance of the IANA naming function against the service level expectations in the IANA Naming Function Contract.

The CSC analyzes performance reports provided by PTI and publishes its findings.

The CSC is authorized to undertake remedial action to address poor performance of the IANA naming function, and if performance issues are not remedied, may escalate the issues to the ccNSO and GNSO.

Additional information on the CSC is available at: https://www.icann.org/csc [icann.org]<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.icann.org_csc&d=DwMFaQ&c=FmY1u3PJp6wrcrwll3mSVzgfkbPSS6sJms7xcl4I5cM&r=PF9VKOo4nYMGLTtWcHZZreauv03rE96xienOw4tThw4&m=vZHBJiLrXYcPqEDGdjIma9Q6O0eAbA9D1YDF-t_Ype8&s=lCDisXZUHJS8GWhRzCPDTaEm5j-X-XNhhXFCuOlATtc&e=> .

Kind regards,

At-Large Staff
