Original Public Comment: PTI / IANA Governance Proposal
Summary of Attachment
The Country-Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO) Council appreciates and welcomes the steps both the ICANN and PTI Boards as well as PTI staff are taking to consult the IANA Naming Service direct customers and others on the proposed Bylaw changes. This submission only reflects the views of the ccNSO Council and was adopted as such in accordance with the Guideline: ccNSO Statements (2016)
Summary of Submission
From a ccNSO Council perspective the proposed amendments and the reasons are clear and reasonable. The changes appear to make it easier for the community to engage with this process, which is a positive change.
Although the proposed Bylaw changes do not appear to affect this basic principle, the ccNSO Council would strongly support assurances and explicit confirmation by PTI that the safeguards on the separation of ICANN and PTI and ICANN’s obligation to fund the IANA functions are maintained as basic principles and are not affected.
