RD303 - ETNO Reflection Document in response to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration of the US Department of Commerce Inquiry , on the Assessment of the Transition of the Technical Coordination and Management of the Internet’s Do

ETNO renews its support for the transition of ICANN towards a fully independent and fully privatised organisation, accountable to all stakeholders. Such a move demands that ICANN becomes fully accountable to its multistakeholder community, by completing the required implementation plan by the expiration of the JPA at the end of September 2009. If this cannot be achieved by that date, ICANN must, as a minimum, commit to achieving that and also ensuring that the new accountability mechanism is reflected within its bylaws, within a period of one year from that date.

ETNO renews its support for the transition of ICANN towards a fully independent and fully privatised organisation yet accountable to all stakeholders, which enjoys improved confidence, in the post JPA era; however a number of key actions need to be urgently addressed and commenced for the transition to take place.
ETNO believes that the single government oversight of ICANN has to stop. Such a move demands that ICANN becomes fully accountable to its multistakeholder community, by completing the required implementation plan by the expiration of the JPA at the end of September 2009. If this cannot be achieved by that date, ICANN must, as a minimum, commit to achieving that and also ensuring that the new accountability mechanism is reflected within its bylaws, within a period of one year from that date.
