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
