As a follow up from yesterday's call, this is a very preliminary draft of the statement to share with our global and regional mailing lists.
I tried to write more on how the communinity can be enaged but I found it hard, as this is the part that RIRs will be consulting with the community, not the CRISP Team.

I welcome you all to comment in the coming 24h.
Let's target to share, at this point, at around UTC15:00 10 Apri to the global IANAXFER list and each of the RIR mailing list within Friday your time.

To ARIN region representatives,
Please confirm whether the description of the session and what to expect is correct.

German/RIR staff,
May I suggest to add a list of coming RIR meetings at :


This way, the community can not only confirm what was discussed but also what to expect as future engagement opportunities.


Subject: Next Steps in the Process and the Community Engagement

Dear Colleagues,

As a follow up from APNIC39 Conference which was held in Fukuoka in March 2015, which discussed the next steps on preparation of implementation for the numbers proposal, summary of major discussion points are now available from the NRO website.


I would like to highlight three key points from the meeting.

  1. Separability of the IANA Numbering Services operator from ICANN
     In course of developing SLA, it was consulted at the meeting whether separability is a critical and essential part of the SLA contract.
     It was confirmed at the meeting that :

      - The separability of services from ICANN is seen as one of the most important elements in ensuring the accountability of the IANA numbering function operator.
      - As defined in the numbers community proposal, the possibility of changing the operator from ICANN in the future should remain open, which is expected to be reflected in the SLA.
      - APNIC confirmed that the RIR would work on an SLA that is consistent with the numbers community proposal.

  2. Transparency in providing feedback for the proposal
      - If any entities have concerns about reflecting the seperability of the IANA Numbering Services operator or any other part of the numbers proposal in the SLA, this should be communicated to the community’s attention in a
        transparent manner for further consultation.

  3. Future steps in the community consultation on implementation
      - The plan is to carry the community consultation over the course of the coming months at the RIR meetings – this APNIC meeting is the first of these.
      - During this period, all regions will have the chance to discuss issues relevant to the drafting of the SLA.
      - After all the regional consultations are complete and all these processes have run their course, we should have a final agreed SLA as the outcome, which would then be part of the implementation of the numbers community proposal.

 From this stage, the RIRs will be responsible in preparing implementation of the IANA stewardship transition for the IANA Numbering Services and consulting with the community on its implementation as needed, based on the numbers community proposal.

In preparation for implementation, RIRs will be consulting with the community at the coming RIR meetings as well as on the global ianaxfer at nro.net and each regional mailing lists as when appropriate.

The CRISP Team have completed its role of developing the community based proposal for the IANA Numbering Services after its submission to the ICG but continues to be engaged in :
      - Clarifying the intention of the proposal to the RIRs in preparing its implementation, in transparent manner with the community
      - Share observation to the RIRs on community feedback received about implementation,  whether it is consistent with the proposal
      - Follow up with the RIRs on the status and latest timeline of the preparation of implementation

As the coming RIR meeting where the community will be consulted on the status of implementation, ARIN35 Meeting will be held in San Francisco with a CRISP Panel at 11:00 AM-12:00 PM (UTC-7) Monday, 13 April, 2015.
Panelists will report on the Consolidated RIR IANA Stewardship Proposal (CRISP) Team's proposal, which was submitted to the IANA Stewardship Coordination Group, as well as talk about current status and the next steps.


Online participation is possible for those who cannot attend the meeting physically, and I encourage the community members to join the community consultation at ARIN35.

Best Regards,
Izumi Okutani
Chair, the CRISP Team
