Hi Matthanya,

Thanks for your quick reply, brother!
 Yes! it's obvious for me and the Staff actually has the power to implement
that tool; without a policy; if they want...the CPM version 1.6 can not
stop them. You seem to prefer a scenario where: the Staff is fully the
master of the conception + implementation of a dashboard tool to check and
notify resource holders for CPM's non-compliance?

> The whole process already exists and
...including an affordable mean to maintain a good
CPM-compliance Status?
Btw, please, which process are you referring to?

> non complying members don't need a dashboard for AFRINIC to act on it.
You seem to have only one basket! you need two, for completeness; because:
some of them might wait for it, in order to help them to more
acurrately/appropriately address their known and unknown lack of compliance
to the CPM. They should have read and understand the CPM first :'-(

You seems to ignore/forget the fact that a non-compliant resource holder
risks to lost its holded Internet Number Resources :'-(
who want to loss the resource it hold ; due to lack of compliance?

Please take a second basket, brother ;-)

...i'm sure that that particular category exist, within
the AfriNIC's service region, and some of them are
actually attacking the INRS (RFC7020) and
individual members of the PDWG's and the
AfriNIC's community...through different means :'-(

Thus its necessity, because, it removes their ability to lie that they were
not aware of their non-compliance status; particularly due to the non
existence of a dashboard to help them to easily being notified.

You should read the text quoted below, if not yet:
1. Summary of the problem being addressed by this proposal

The AFRINIC RSA* mandates members to comply with the AFRINIC policies
developed via the PDP.

Section 4.C of the RSA states the irrevocable commitment of the member for
using the services for the purpose for which it was requested and in full
unreserved compliance with AFRINIC policies.

This is of key importance, because a member not following the policies may
be impacted in the evaluation of future requests by AFRINIC, the revocation
of the services or even the closure of the member (section 4.b.iii).

Just to be clear, “services” are defined in the RSA, under section 1.C, and
those include number resources, among others. So, the impact for a member
that is not following the PDP process and CPM changes, maybe of
catastrophic business consequences.

The PDP is continuously updating the CPM, and it is obvious that some
members may not be following, up to date, all the details and possible
impact in their services/resources, while the RSA states that AFRINIC, at
its own discretion, can investigate the use of the services.

Every Policy in the CPM indicates what and how things should be done. Lack
of conformity with any part of the CPM, even if not clearly stated, it is
considered a lack of compliance, following a coherent interpretation of
both the RSA and the CPM.

Consequently, members should be protected against this situation, in a
simple manner that allows them to know their up-to-date policy compliance,
get alerts about the lack of compliance and consequently react to address

The RSA specifies a generic procedure to resolve the situation with
members, and facilitate the actual compliance. There should be a clearer
timeline and sufficient opportunities to resolve the situation, in a fair
way to all the members, instead of taking irreversible decisions on the
first occasion of any policy violation in case of no response in 30 days.

There should be always equal opportunities for any member to correct
mistakes before reaching a fatal point.

...hope this definitely addressed your concerns,
For you previous concerns, pleased see here [1].
