|5 March 2018||RDS/WHOIS2 specific reviews participation||
In May 2017 the ccNSO Council informed the ICANN Board of Directors that it did not consider itself to be in a position to nominate volunteers to the RDS/WHOIS2 review team for the following reasons (see: https://ccnso.icann.org/sites/default/files/file/field-file-attach/2017-05/sataki-to-crocker-02may17-en.pdf):
The Chair of the ccNSO was approached by the RDS/WHOIS review team to consider participation by the ccNSO, as the Review Team has almost agreed on the terms of Reference for the review.
The ccNSO Council discussed the request to consider participation at its meeting on 18 January 2018. The consensus view at the meeting was that at least 2 out of the 3 concerns are still outstanding, with the major one being the impact of the General Data Protection Regulation and its potential impact on WHOIS/RDS, including the recommendations of the first WHOIS review.
The ccNSO Council decides that the ccNSO will not participate in the RDS/WHOIS2 specific review. The ccNSO Council requests its chair to inform the chairs of the other participating Supporting Organisations and Advisory Committee and other relevant parties. The ccNSO Council thanks the volunteers who sought endorsement of the ccNSO.
