Dear CRISP Team,

Once again, it's excellent news to confirm the NTIA's assessment report published.

With the finalised SLA and the Review Committee Charter, the remaining implementation to be addressed on the transition proposal for IANA Numbering Services is IPR related to the provision of the IANA service.

We would like to share the current status on IPR with some recent developments.

As we had updated the CRISP Team both on this list and at the CRISP Team call, we have handed over the responsibility on coordinating and preparing implementation for IPR from the CRISP Team to the RIRs in Jan 2016.
Based on this, CRISP Chairs have been observing the progress as below.

The leaders from the three operational communities have developed and agreed on the principal terms of the legal document on IPR related to the provision of the IANA service.
The draft has been shared by Alan Barrett from the NRO EC on the global ianaxfer list in Feb 2016:  https://www.nro.net/pipermail/ianaxfer/2016-February/000728.html

This is now under legal review by each operational communities.

 IETF          : The IETF Trust has In the The Trust has determined that it could proceed with negotiating the relevant agreements to implement the transfer of the IPR according to the principles in the document
 ICANN CWG-IANA: Legal review received from the lawyers and shared on the CWG mailing list
 RIRs          : Waiting for legal review to be completed by the RIR lawyers

Further, the CWG Chairs have invited other communities to share legal reviews from respective lawyers, and there is a meeting suggested next week, among the group of leaders on the IANA IPR group from each operational communities.

In moving forward, we would like to request that the CWG and RIRs are able to approve the principal terms document smoothly with clarity on the date, to move to the next phase of developing the contracts between the IETF Trust and each operational communities respectively. Additionally, we would like to confirm the timelines for these implementation steps for IPR, in order to complete the implementation including IPR before the expiry of the IANA contract in Sep 2016.

Please let us know if you have any questions, and welcome any additional information if there is anything which can be shared on this list from the RIR legal team.
