Original Public Comment: IANA Naming Function Review Bylaws Changes
Summary of Attachment
The Country-Code Name Supporting Organization (ccNSO) Council welcomes the opportunity to provide a response and input to ICANN’s proposed amendments to Articles 18 and 19 of the ICANN Bylaws. This response and input reflects the views of the ccNSO (Council) and was adopted as such in accordance with the Guideline: ccNSO Statements (2016)
Summary of Submission
The ccNSO Council supports the proposed amendment to the Bylaws. However, the Council believes that sections 18.8 (d) and 19.6 (a) need to be updated to align them with 18.7 and the proposed changes to section 19.5 (i) and (ii). The ccNSO Council is also of the view that this Fundamental Bylaw change is an opportunity to adjust the frequency of the IANA Naming Function Review. Finally, the Council wants to express its concern about the timing of this review: will the amendment process be included in time by the time the ccNSO and GNSO are expected to appoint co-chairs for the second review?
