ICANN and Regional Internet Registries Sign SLA for the IANA Numbering
Helsinki, Finland – 29 June 2016. The RIRs and ICANN signed the Service
Level Agreement (SLA) for the IANA Numbering Services today at ICANN 56
in Helsinki, Finland. This agreement documents the arrangements for
provision by ICANN of IANA numbering services, after the IANA
stewardship transition which is expected to occur on 30 September 2016.
The SLA will only come into effect with the transition, and will have no
effect whatsoever before that time.
This event is a significant milestone in the long process of transition
planning which started in March 2014 with US Government announcement.
The process involved huge efforts by the Internet number community
collectively, and by teams formed specifically to carry out the work.
In particular the NRO Executive Council expresses its sincere thanks for
the contribution by CRISP members during the last year and a half in the
IANA Stewardship Transition Process. The CRISP Team worked tirelessly to
integrate and consolidate the views from the five different regional
communities into a single proposal. As the work of the CRISP team is now
finally complete, we hereby announce that the team is formally dissolved.
Finally the NRO EC also wishes acknowledge the support of the ICANN
Board and staff who worked hard with us to finalise the SLA and ensure
it was completed on time.
The final version of the SLA is available at: http://www.nro.net/sla
