WACREN 2018 Opening Ceremony 

AFRINIC was represented at several events this year. 


APRICOT 2018 took place in Kathmandu Nepal from 19-28 February. AFRINIC participated at the Registration Services Coordination Group (RSCG) meeting where registration services members from the RIRs discussed on general RIR Registration services affairs such as WHOIS data accuracy and Identifier Technology Health Indicators at APRICOT 2018.

IANA Numbering Services Review Committee has released a 2017 Numbering services report. The report, which covers April-December 2017, indicates that the performance of the IANA Number Services Operations was within the Service Level Agreement and met the needs of Internet number community. The Review Committee’s evaluations observed that two IPv4 requests and two ASN requests were made and fulfilled accurately between March 2017 and December 2017. The Committee also reported that there was sufficient community outreach and community involvement in the review of the performance of the IANA Numbering Services during the period. The Review Committee was established in October 2016 to advise the RIRs on the IANA Functions Operator’s performance and adherence to identified service levels upon completion of the IANA Stewardship Transition process. The Review Committee must submit such a report to the NRO EC at least once every calendar year. The committee comprises representatives from all five RIR regions.
