> The four RIRs (Regional Internet Registries): APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC, and
> RIPE NCC have jointly worked on the preparation of a proposal

> RIRs and their communities take part in ICANN.
> As a consequence, three documents have been prepared: 
> - Proposal to execute an agreement between the four RIRs in order to
> create the Number Resource Organization (NRO). This organization will
> represent the interests of the IP addresses community before the
> national, international or public entities.  
> - Proposal of a Memorandum of Understanding between the RIRs, to act
> through the NRO and the ICANN in relation to the ASO (Address 
> Supporting
> Organization), the ICANN section committed to the Internet Number
> Resources issues. The ASO was created through a previous Memorandum of
> Understanding, signed in 1999. The current proposal would  replace the
> previous Memorandum, modifying the present ASO structure. 
> - Proposal of an Open Letter from the RIRs to the ICANN 
> relative to the
> previous items.
> The RIRs call for public comments from the community members 
> in relation
> to these documents. As the comments will be jointly
