[rpd] Appeal Committee Terms of Reference (Version 1)

Hi Board,

Thank you very much for the terms of reference which I personally think are pretty much exactly what is required.

I have only one comment which I think needs to be looked at, surrounding point 5.3.f.

The decision on lack of consensus on a policy is often announced on the floor of the meeting and may not be announced via email or via a linkable reference for a fair while – it may be good to cater for this scenario in the ToR.

Beyond that I must commend the board for a job well done and thank them the effort taken to put these ToR’s together, I am sure the rest of the community will join me in extending gratitude for the solid work in this regard.

Subject: [rpd] Appeal Committee Terms of Reference (Version 1)

Dear PDWG,

The AFRINIC Board of Directors intends to establish an Appeal Committee
to give effect to the requirements in section 3.5 of the Consolidated
Policy Manual (that is, the Conflict resolution portion of the Policy
Development Process).

The Appeal Committee Terms of Reference (version 1) is published at<>

The Board calls for comments on the Terms of Reference for a 30 day
period, ending on 19 August 2017. Comments may be sent to the RPD
mailing list <rpd at>.

The Board intends to appoint an interim Appeal Committee without delay,
to cater for the possibility that an appeal might be filed before the
comments on the Terms of reference can be taken into account. We seek
the cooperation of the community in this regard.

Sunday Folayan
Chair of the AFRINIC Board of Directors
