The new ToR at least don’t violate so explicitly the PDP as the previous one.
I’ve a problem however with decisions following majority. That doesn’t make sense to me. All the work in the PDP (and the AC is part of it) is done following consensus. How then the AC now is changed to work with “democracy”?
Finally, point 3 it is a bit irrational in my opinion. If the co-chairs erred in their decision about consensus, then the AC is actually changing that decision. Yes, you can say that this is an “indirect” consequence, but actually is very “direct”, and in fact, 3.5.2 of the PDP say “The Appeal Committee may direct that the Chair(s) decision be annulled if the Policy Development Process has not been followed.”, so clearly, if by any reason the decision of the co-chairs is erred as confirmed by the AC, the AC duty is to change that.
Otherwise, if the Board is willing to change that, then it will be a new Board violation of the PDP, which can only be done by mean of a policy proposal reaching consensus.

Please be advised that the new Terms of Reference for the Policy Development Appeal Committee has been published
(https://afrinic.net/policy/appeal-committee ) as per the Board Resolution 202107.622 (https://www.afrinic.net/board/meeting/2021#r622).
The AFRINIC Policy Development Appeal Committee, or the Appeal Committee, is a committee appointed by the AFRINIC Board, intended to adjudicate appeals in terms of the Conflict Resolution section of the AFRINIC Policy Development Process (PDP). Any such appeal will involve a disagreement regarding the actions taken by the Chair(s) of the Policy Development Working Group (PDWG).
The AFRINIC Board at its meeting held on 08 July 2021 resolved to revoke the current Terms of Reference for the Appeal Committee and replace them with new Terms of Reference.
As a consequence of the above, the Appeal Committee that was reconstituted by the Board on 14 April 2021 was dissolved.
The new version makes the required provision for Section 3.5(1) of AFRINIC’s Consolidated Policy Manual.
We invite you all to take note of its scope with regards to the composition, term and duty of the committee.
The reconstitution of the Appeal Committee is currently ongoing so that the current appeals can be assessed.
