Status of CSC
1 October 2016: The Committee is now active.
Under the now expired IANA functions contract, NTIA provided operational oversight of the IANA naming function. In the ICG proposal, the domain names community required that a CSC be formed to replace this oversight and ensure the continued satisfactory performance of the IANA naming function for the direct customers of the naming services.
The CSC monitors PTI’s performance of the IANA naming function by analyzing performance reports on a monthly basis and publishing its findings. It is authorized to undertake remedial action to address poor performance, and if performance issues are not remedied, the CSC is authorized to escalate the performance issues to the ccNSO and GNSO for consideration. Additionally, the CSC may recommend changes to the naming Service Level Expectations as well as enhancements to the provision of the IANA naming services.
On May 27, 2016, the ICANN Board approved new ICANN Bylaws that require the establishment the CSC to these specifications.
On June 1, 2016, ICANN sent a request to the Supporting Organizations, Advisory Committees and Registry Stakeholder Group (RySG) to initiate their respective processes to appoint candidates to serve on the CSC.
On August 10, 2016, the ccNSO and GNSO councils approved the inaugural CSC membership composition.
