ICANN: IANA Functions Stewardship Transition Updates

ICANN logoOn 14 March 2014, the NTIA announced its intention to transition its stewardship role of IANA functions, and called upon ICANN to launch and facilitate a process with the community to derive a proposal to transition stewardship of the IANA functions to the global multistakeholder community, meeting the criteria set out by the NTIA.

Following community dialogue, the process for developing a proposal for this transition was posted on 6 June 2014. As a part of this process, a Coordination Group will be responsible for preparing a transitional proposal respective of the differing needs of the various affected parties of the IANA functions.

See here for a full list of the Coordination Group Representatives.

The first face-to-face meeting of the Coordination Group will take place in London from 08:00-17:00 UTC on 17-18 July at the Hilton London Metropole Hotel.

UPDATE: The agenda for the 2-day Coordination Group Meeting can be found here [PDF, 37 KB].

The global multistakeholder community will be able to follow the Coordination Group’s first meeting through the Virtual Meeting Room and through audio translations into these languages:


In addition, the community is encouraged to join the conversation through use of the online discussion forum or ICANN‘s dedicated IANA Transition mailing list to discuss the transition process.
