Dear Councillors,

Please find the resolutions passed by the GNSO Council in its meeting on
Thursday, 19 March 2015.

These are also published on page:


*Consent agenda*

Council confirmed the selection of the Privacy & Proxy Services
Accreditation Issues (PPSAI) Working Group for a facilitated face-to-face
meeting at ICANN53 in Buenos Aires.

* Motion to implement the recommendations of the GAC-GNSO Consultation
Group in relation to Issue Scoping on a trial basis*

1.       In March 2014 the GNSO and GAC formed a joint consultation group
(CG) to explore mechanisms to facilitate GAC early engagement in GNSO
Policy Development Processes.

2.       As per its charter, the CG's deliberations have focused on *two
tracks*, namely 1) a mechanism for day-to-day ongoing cooperation and 2) a
mechanism for GAC early engagement in the GNSO PDP
(see https://community.icann.org/display/gnsogcgogeeipdp/3.+Charter).

3.       As part of its deliberations on *track 2)*, the CG put forward a
set of preliminary recommendations concerning the issue scoping phase of
the PDP which were reviewed and discussed by the GAC and the GNSO during
the ICANN52 meeting in Singapore
(see http://gnso.icann.org/en/drafts/gac-cg-issue-scoping-27jan15-en.pdf).

4.      The GAC noted in its Communiqué (ICANN52), that '*The GAC met the
GNSO and agreed, on a trial basis and subject to ongoing adjustments as
necessary, to a mechanism proposed by the GAC-GNSO Consultation Group for
early engagement at the issues scoping phase of the GNSO Policy Development
Process (PDP). This includes formation of a GAC Quick-Look Mechanism
Committee. The arrangements will allow for an early indication in the PDP
of whether the issue has a standing GAC advice and whether it has public
policy implications, and hence is of interest to  the GAC. It will also
enable the GNSO to factor this in and the GAC to prepare input to be
provided at the relevant stages of the PDP. This would not limit the GAC's
existing ability to give advice to the ICANN Board*'.

5.       Based on these discussions and input received, the CG recommends
that the GAC and GNSO Council implement these recommendations on a trial
basis, in order to assess their effectiveness in facilitating GAC early
engagement in the GNSO PDP.

6.       In the meantime, the CG will continue its review and deliberations
on the other phases of the GNSO PDP, which may result in further proposals
of additional recommendations for consideration.


1.               The GNSO Council agrees to jointly implement with the GAC,
the preliminary recommendations by the CG concerning the issue scoping
phase of the PDP as outlined here
http://gnso.icann.org/en/drafts/gac-cg-issue-scoping-27jan15-en.pdf on a
trial basis for a minimum of 3 consecutive GNSO PDP's immediately following
the adoption of the motion.

2.       Following the end of this trial period, the CG is expected to
report back to the GAC and GNSO Council on the effectiveness of these
recommendations as a result of the experiences gained during the trial
period. Furthermore, the CG is expected to make a recommendation as to
whether or not the preliminary recommendations concerning the issue scoping
phase of the PDP should be permanently implemented, either in their current
form, or with possible modifications based on the further work of the CG
including experience gained during the trial.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you.

Kind regards,


Glen de Saint Géry
