ICANN Board Transmits IANA Stewardship Transition Proposal and Enhancing ICANN Accountability Recommendations to NTIA
On 10 March 2016, on behalf of the ICANN multistakeholder community, the ICANN Board transmitted a plan developed by the international Internet community that, if approved, will lead to global stewardship of some key technical Internet functions -- the IANA functions.
Welcome to the NTIA IANA Functions' Stewardship Transition microsite, a comprehensive destination for discussion, contribution, and collaboration related to the NTIA's announcement and request of 14 March 2014.
As convener of the process to develop a transition proposal, ICANN has made available the tools and resources to facilitate the discussion and capture the views and comments of the global multistakeholder community.
This microsite will serve as a resource and information-sharing platform for all interested parties, as well as a tool for the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG) to keep global stakeholders updated on all developments.
Shortly after the NTIA Announcement of 14 March 2014, ICANN launched a multistakeholder process and discussion to gather community views and input on the principles and mechanisms for the transitioning of NTIA's stewardship of the IANA functions.
Then following a call for names, the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG) was formed comprised of individuals selected by each represented community. These 30 individuals represent 13 communities of both direct and indirect stakeholders who together will deliver a proposal to the NTIA recommending a transition plan of NTIA’s stewardship of IANA functions to the Internet community, consistent with the key principles outlined in the NTIA March 14 announcement. The ICG will conduct itself transparently, consult with a broad range of stakeholders and ensure that its final recommendations support the security and stability of the IANA functions.
