NCUC statement on transition and ICANN reforms

The Noncommercial Users Constituency (NCUC) Executive Committee (EC) was gratified to hear that the IANA transition will not be blocked by the U.S. Congress. We congratulate the board and the entire multistakeholder community on this news. Now that the contract with NTIA is sure to expire on September 30, the NCUC EC asks that the ICANN board immediately file and execute any and all procedures needed to implement the new bylaws, which put into place critical accountability reforms. We see quick action on this matter as a confidence-building measure and a signal of good faith to the global stakeholder community. We see delay any in taking those steps as raising risks to the successful completion of the transition. We hope the board and ICANN’s legal staff share these concerns and act accordingly.
