16 August 2016 - AFRINIC announces the following initial members of the IANA Numbering Services Review Committee:
* Fiona Asonga (community representative, until 31 December 2016)
* Douglas Onyango (community representative, until 31 December 2017)
* Madhvi Gokool (staff representative, until further notice)
The two community representatives are automatically appointed to the IANA Numbering Services Review Committee as a result of their appointment to the NRO NC/ASO AC. The staff representative is appointed by the CEO.
In terms of the IANA Numbering Services SLA between the RIRs and ICANN SLA, the RIRs will establish an IANA Numbering Services Review Committee, to review ICANN’s or PTI’s performance of the IANA Numbering Services.
In terms of the Review Committee’s charter, each RIR will appoint three representatives to the committee:
(a) two community appointees from each RIR region (who must not be RIR staff); and
(b) one RIR staff from the region (who will be a non-voting member).
In terms of AFRINIC Board resolution 201511.255, the Board recommended that the two community representatives appointed to the NRO NC should automatically serve on the IANA Numbering Services Review Committee, and that the CEO should appoint a staff member to the committee. This recommendation by the Board was presented to the membership at the AFRINIC-23 meeting in Pointe Noire, Republic of Congo, in November 2015.
