Dear Colleagues,

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 <https://www.nro.net/news/icann-and-regional-internet-registries-sign-sla-for-the-iana-numbering-services>, 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 <https://www.nro.net/wp-content/uploads/Review-Committee-Charter_FINALclean.pdf>, 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 <http://www.afrinic.net/about/bod/meeting/2015#r255>, 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.
