LOS ANGELES – The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) Naming Function Review Team (IFRT) announced that it has completed the Rules of Engagement, Scope of Work, and Work Plan for the IANA Naming Function Review (IFR).

According to the Authority, the IFR is one of the new accountability mechanisms created as part of the IANA stewardship transition to ensure that ICANN via its affiliate Public Technical Identifiers (PTI) meets the needs and expectations of its naming customers.

The IFRT will conduct the review in accordance with the scope specified in Article 18 of the ICANN Bylaws, which centers around a review and evaluation of PTI's performance of the IANA naming function against the contractual requirements in the IANA Naming Function Contract and the IANA Naming Function SOW.

What are the next steps for the review team?

The review team has determined an initial methodology for conducting detailed fact-finding. An outreach plan to get input from the direct customers of the IANA Naming Function Process, as well as the broader ICANN community, is under development.
