Board grants provisional approval of AFRINIC's application and transition plan.
Whereas ICANN has previously adopted a set of procedures and standards for the receipt and evaluation of applications for recognition as a regional Internet registry (RIR), as authorized by the Board in resolution 01.68;
Whereas an application for recognition, together with a detailed transition plan – including draft bylaws, policies, funding model, and staff resumes – have been submitted to ICANN by the ARRINIC organization;
Whereas the President has conducted a preliminary evaluation and concluded that the application and transition plan constitute a reasonable basis for eventual recognition, while noting that some adjustments might be necessary;
Resolved [04.82] that the Board gives its provisional approval to the AFRINIC application for recognition and transition plan, with the expectation that the transition plan will be completed and an amended or revised application for recognition will be submitted; and
Resolved [04.83] that the President is directed to continue working closely with AFRINIC, ARIN, RIPE, and APNIC, through the NRO, to assist in a smooth transition and the preparation of a revised application for full recognition of AFRINIC in conformance with the criteria set forth in ICP-2 and the then current version of the ASO Memorandum of Understanding.
