Deferral of Country Code Names Supporting Organization Review

The ccNSO Review, scheduled to start in August 2017, is proposed to be deferred by 12 months, in response to community concerns about bandwidth.
As per ICANN's Bylaws, Article 4, Section 4.4 (a), organizational reviews, such as the ccNSO Review, 'shall be conducted no less frequently than every five years, based on feasibility as determined by the Board.'
The Final Report of the previous ccNSO Review was submitted to the Board on 4 March 2011. Following an initial deferral, due to the IANA Transition, the ICANN Board, based on explicit feedback from the ccNSO Chair, proposes to defer the upcoming ccNSO Review until August 2018.
The ccNSO will use the time until the start of the next ccNSO Review to conduct an evaluation of the implementation status of the recommendations that arose from the previous Review.
