This very important announcement is brought to you on behalf of the
Number Resource Organization (NRO)


For the past 12 months, many in the Internet community have worked hard
to formulate a plan for the transition of stewardship of the IANA
functions away from the U.S. Government and into the hands of the
broader Internet community.

Working with and on behalf of the Internet Number Community, the CRISP
Team built a plan for the IANA numbering functions, and this now forms
part of the transition plan developed by the IANA Stewardship Transition
Coordination Group for all of the IANA functions.

We are now very close to the end of this long and complex process, and
the Number Community has devoted many hours to meetings and discussions
around the plan. At this stage of the process, to ensure the success of
the transition, it is vital that the global Internet community expresses
its support for ICG proposal.

Therefore, we encourage members of the RIR communities to review the
ICG’s draft IANA Stewardship Transition Proposal and register their
support or any concerns they may have:

Comments can be submitted via an online form or by emailing
<public-comments at ianacg.org> until 8 September 2015 at 23:59 (UTC).
Please note that all questions on the online form about the proposal are
optional. The form can be accessed at:

If you agree with the key priorities in the Number Community’s
contribution to the proposal – which focused on ensuring stability,
security, reliability, quality of service and community empowerment –
please submit your statement of support today!

Your comment could be as simple as this:

I , as a member of the Number Community, am in favor of the ICG proposal
on the IANA stewardship transition.

If for any reason you do not agree with the draft proposal, it is
essential that you take the time to comment and describe your viewpoint
and underlying reasoning.

For more information, please review the CRISP Team’s own analysis, which
shows how the ICG proposal reflects and supports the CRISP proposal, and
the wishes of the global Number Community. It is available here:
