Q.1/2 invites the ISOC/IAB to consider the following administrative control concerns that have been expressed by its members.  The administrative concerns, detailed below, represent the issues.

Following the ITU Plenipotentiary Resolution 133 (Marrakesh, 2002) the ITU-TSB should ensure that national sovereignty over national numbering plans is maintained within any ENUM delegation.  ITU Plenipotentiary Resolution 133 instructs the Secretary General to take any necessary action to ensure the sovereignty of ITU Member States with regard to country code numbering plans and addresses will be fully maintained, as enshrined in recommendation E.164 of the ITU Telecommunications Standardization Sector, in whatever application they are used.

The ITU-TSB taking into consideration the above in particular its role as ENUM Tier 0 Registrar shall be consulted of any changes to the ENUM Tier 0 Registry (currently RIPE NCC), its instructions from the IAB or the management by the operator of the ENUM Tier 0 Registry.  Such changes include:

·       A change of the IAB Instructions[1] to the ENUM Tier 0 Registry,

The ITU-TSB may consult with Member States and the ITU-T Study Group, which may then advise the Director of the TSB regarding a response. The ITU-TSB will respond to the ENUM Tier 0 Registry with the results of this consultation.  

The operator of the ENUM Tier 0 Registry shall not be changed by the ENUM Tier 0 Manager (i.e. currently IAB) without prior consultation with the ITU-TSB, acting as the ENUM Tier 0 Registrar, as described in clause 5 of RFC 3761.

Should the ENUM Tier 0 Registry be changed the ITU-TSB (ENUM Tier 0 Registrar) will consult with ITU Member States and the ITU-T Study Group and/or its delegated representatives, which will then provide advice to the Director of the TSB regarding the ENUM Tier 0 Registry change.  The ITU-TSB will prepare a liaison to the ENUM Tier 0 Manager (i.e. currently IAB) based on the results of this consultation regarding endorsement of the ENUM Tier 0 Registry change.

We request your feedback to the concerns expressed and how you suggest that they could be addressed (for example, whether they could be addressed in a formal document produced by you).
