Dear Colleagues,


The ASO liaisons to the CCWG note the release of the Final Report of the CCWG WS1 recommendations,
and commend the working group for its efforts in its production of the report. The report 
may be found here https://community.icann.org/x/8w2AAw

As a chartering organization, the ASO has been requested to approve the Final Report of the CCWG 
recommendations on behalf of the number community, and by this message is now seeking any 
comments on concerns about this draft for consideration in this process. The ASO liaisons will
provide any comments along with their recommendation by March 4th to the NRO EC for its 
consideration of this matter.

Please refer to the original message of "ICANN Accountability Supplemental Final Proposal - Number, Community-Related Analysis" for more details, which has been shared/to be shared on each regional mailing list.



Best Regards,

Izumi Okutani
An ASO representative to the CCWG
