Understanding the IANA Stewardship Functions Transition Process

Posted: Monday, 28 July 2014

ARIN believes that globalization of the IANA oversight is critical in developing a true multistakeholder model of Internet governance. Since the National Telecommunication and Information Administration (NTIA) announced its intention to transition stewardship of the IANA functions to the global multistakeholder community, we have been publishing updates and other information as it becomes available.  We also have started an information page:


As part of our commitment to the global community and the transition process, ARIN is also working to develop the dialog in our community about this important issue. We are currently collecting questions to make sure we address your concerns about the transition process.  Please send your questions to info@arin.net with the Subject "IANA Functions Transition", by 11 August 2014.  We will be using your input to help shape discussion on this issue at ARIN 34 and in other educational outreach and engagement efforts.
