On 1 October 2016 the contract between the Internet Corporation for
Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and the United States Department of
Commerce National Telecommunications and Information Administration
(NTIA), to perform the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA)
functions, officially expired.
The expiration of this contract established the commencement date of the
Service Level Agreement (SLA) entered into between ICANN and the five
Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) for the administration of the IANA
Numbering Services, signed on 29 June 2016.

The realization of the IANA stewardship transition is an important
milestone in Internet coordination activities, and all members of the
global multistakeholder community should be proud of their efforts in
making this happen.
To provide ongoing oversight and accountability for the IANA Numbering
Services administrator, the Internet Number Community proposal to the
IANA Stewardship Coordination Group (ICG) called for the establishment
of an IANA Numbering Services Review Committee, whose role is to ensure
the Service Level Agreement (SLA) for the IANA Numbering Services is met
by the IANA Numbering Services Operator. The committee was required as
part of the Internet Number Community's proposal to replace US
Government oversight of the IANA functions.
The review committee charter is available for review at:
Three representatives from each Regional Internet Registry (RIR)
community will serve on the committee. For ARIN, these roles will be
filled by the two community-elected NRO Number Council members and one
ARIN staff member who is appointed by the ARIN Board of Trustees will
participate on the ARIN community's behalf.
ARIN is pleased to announce the seating of its representatives to the
IANA Numbering Services Review Committee:
* Louie Lee- NRO NC
* Jason Schiller – NRO NC
* Nate Davis – ARIN staff representative
President and CEO
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)
