Advisory Committees shall have no legal authority to act for ICANN, but shall report their findings and recommendations to the Board. Any petition for the recognition of a new Constituency and the associated charter shall be posted for public comment. Each Stakeholder Group identified in Section 11.3 and each of its associated Constituencies, where applicable, shall maintain recognition with the ICANN Board.

Solicit input from ICANN as well as the global Internet community on requirements to plan and participate in the IANA Naming Function RFP process. After completion of the IFR, the IFRT shall submit its final report containing its findings and recommendations to the Board. ICANN shall thereafter promptly post the IFRT’s final report on the Website. IFRT meetings, deliberations and other working procedures shall be open to the public and conducted in a transparent manner to the fullest extent possible. Any members of the IFRT not in favor of an action may record a minority dissent to such action, which shall be included in the IFRT minutes and/or report, as applicable. All actions of the IFRT shall be taken by consensus of the IFRT, which is where a small minority may disagree, but most agree.

If consensus cannot be reached with respect to a particular issue, actions by the majority of all of the members of the IFRT shall be the action of the IFRT Insaniquarium. Members, liaisons and participants of the IFRT shall disclose to ICANN and the IFRT any conflicts of interest with a specific complaint or issue under review.

The IFRT may exclude from the discussion of a specific complaint or issue any member deemed by the majority of IFRT members to have a conflict of interest. The co-chairs of the IFRT shall record any such conflict of interest in the minutes of the IFRT. Seek public comment on the amendments that are under consideration by the IFRT through a public comment period that complies with the designated practice for public comment periods within ICANN. Any decision by the ccNSO and GNSO to delay a Periodic IFR must identify the period of delay, which should generally not exceed 12 months after the completion of the Special IFR. The effectiveness of the CSC shall be reviewed two years after the first meeting of the CSC; and then every three years thereafter. The method of review will be determined by the ccNSO and GNSO and the findings of the review will be published on the Website.

The SCWG may exclude from the discussion of a specific complaint or issue any member, liaison or participant deemed by the majority of SCWG members to have a conflict of interest. The co-chairs of the SCWG shall record any such conflict of interest in the minutes of the SCWG. ICANN shall not be authorized to raise fees from any TLD registry operators to cover the costs associated with implementation of any SCWG Recommendations that specifically relate to the transition to a successor operator. For avoidance of doubt, this restriction shall not apply to collecting appropriate fees necessary to maintain the ongoing performance of the IANA naming function, including those relating to the operating costs of the successor operator. The SCWG shall monitor and manage the implementation of such IANA Naming Function Separation Process.

Such support shall not include an obligation for ICANN to fund travel expenses incurred by GNSO participants for travel to any meeting of the GNSO or for any other purpose. ICANN may, at its discretion, fund travel expenses for GNSO participants under any travel support procedures or guidelines that it may adopt from time to time. No more than one officer, director or employee of any particular corporation or other organization shall serve on the GNSO Council at any given time. There may also be liaisons to the GNSO Council from other ICANN Supporting Organizations and/or Advisory Committees, from time to time.

ICANN shall at all times be the sole member of PTI as that term is defined in Section 5056 of the CCC ("Member"). This component of the TLG role covers circumstances in which ICANN is unaware of a new development, and would therefore otherwise not realize that a question should be asked. In addition, in accordance with Section 13.1, the Board may refer issues of public policy pertinent to matters within ICANN’s Mission to a multinational governmental or treaty organization. The purpose of seeking external expert advice is to allow the policy-development process within ICANN to take advantage of existing expertise that resides in the public or private sector but outside of ICANN. In those cases where there are relevant public bodies with expertise, or where access to private expertise could be helpful, the Board and constituent bodies should be encouraged to seek advice from such expert bodies or individuals. The Board will respond in a timely manner to formal advice from all Advisory Committees explaining what action it took and the rationale for doing so.
