RE: [nc-transfer] FW: Format for reports
As a friendly reminder, here is what the Registry Agreements state about
1. "Consensus Policies" are those specifications or policies established
based on a consensus among Internet stakeholders represented in the ICANN
process, as demonstrated by (1) action of the ICANN Board of Directors
establishing the specification or policy, (2) a recommendation, adopted by
at least a two-thirds vote of the council of the ICANN Supporting
Organization to which the matter is delegated, that the specification or
policy should be established, and (3) a written report and supporting
materials (which must include all substantive submissions to the Supporting
Organization relating to the proposal) that (i) documents the extent of
agreement and disagreement among impacted groups, (ii) documents the
outreach process used to seek to achieve adequate representation of the
views of groups that are likely to be impacted, and (iii) documents the
nature and intensity of reasoned support and opposition to the proposed
specification or policy.
I think the NC Process dictated below covers all the essential items, but I
just wanted you all to see what was required from a contractual standpoint.
I want to be sure that when our report is final, there is no argument that
the proper procedure was not followed.
Thanks. Talk to you all in a few.
