He is also a member of ICANN’s At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) and Co-Chair of the AFRINIC Policy Development Working Group.

alan barrettThe ICANN 54 meeting in Dublin, Ireland, concluded a few days ago.  During this meeting, much progress was made on the IANA stewardship transition proposal.

The IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG) reached agreement on the essence of the proposal that they intend to forward to the NTIA (via the ICANN Board). Some light copy editing remains to be done, and then the final text is expected to be approved by the ICG this week.  The ICG’s proposal incorporates proposals from the three operational communities: Names (proposal prepared by the ICANN CWG-Stewardship group), Numbers (proposal prepared by the CRISP Team established by the RIRs), and Protocol Parameters (proposal prepared by the IETF ianaplan working group).  The Names part of the proposal depends on accountability changes from the ICANN CCWG-Accountability group, which have not been completed.

APNIC – the RIR for the Asia Pacific Region - was the first RIR to exhaust its supply of IPv4 address space back in 2011 and the RIPE NCC (Europe, the Middle East and parts of Central Asia) followed quickly in 2012. LACNIC (Latin America and the Caribbean) reached its exhaustion trigger level in June 2014.
