In the ICG proposal, the domain names community required that a standing committee be put into place that will provide recommendations to the ICANN Board regarding the advisability of moving forward with all major architectural changes to the DNS root. ICANN named this committee the Root Zone Evolution Review Committee (RZERC). The RZERC will consider issues raised by any of its members, PTI, or by the CSC.
While the RZERC will not necessarily be the group that considers the details of the issues under consideration, it will be responsible for ensuring that those involved in the decision include all relevant bodies and have access to necessary expertise. As such, the RZERC will coordinate with relevant organizations and communities, and if appropriate, external experts, to confirm that all affected parties are involved in discussions and recommendations regarding architectural changes to the root zone.
