Call for Public Comments on the 2021 IANA Performance Matrix Summary Report

Dear colleagues,

As a result of the successful IANA Stewardship transition in 2016, the IANA Numbering Services are currently managed through a Service Level Agreement between ICANN and the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs).

As part of the result of the IANA Stewardship transition, the IANA Numbering Services Review Committee (IANA RC) was established in 2016. The IANA RC is composed of representatives from each RIR region and advises and assists the RIRs in the review of the IANA Numbering Services.

The IANA services are currently provided by Public Technical Identifiers (PTI), which publishes monthly performance reports on the IANA Numbering Services website.

Based on these monthly performance reports, the five RIRs have produced the 2021 IANA Performance Matrix Summary Report.

30-Day Public Comment Period

The IANA RC is now launching a 30-day public comment period to seek comments and input from the community on the IANA numbering services performance and the 2021 IANA Performance Matrix Summary Report.

The IANA RC encourages all members of the Internet number community to review the public IANA Performance Matrix Summary Report.

Comments on the IANA service performance should be sent to: iana-performance [at] nro [dot] net.

The IANA RC will publish an annual report in March 2022 as advice to the NRO EC with its evaluation of the IANA Numbering services. The report will be based on the IANA Performance Matrix Summary Report and on any input gathered from the global number community.

The public comment period ends on Wednesday, 9 March 2022 at 23:59 UTC.

All public comments will be published on the NRO Website in the dedicated IANA RC section and will be considered as input to the final report by the IANA. At the end of the 30-day public comment period, the IANA RC will meet and evaluate all input to the final report.


Kind regards,

Martin Hannigan

Chair, IANA Numbering Services Review Committee
