Board adopts procedure for handling Global Policy Proposals and directs ICANN Staff to implement the procedure.

Whereas, Article VIII of the ICANN Bylaws states that the ASO AC "shall advise the Board with respect to policy issues relating to the operation, assignment, and management of Internet addresses" and that the ASO "shall be the entity established by the Memorandum of Understanding entered on 21 October 2004 between ICANN and the Number Resource Organization (NRO), an organization of the existing regional Internet registries (RIRs)."

Whereas, the ASO MOU, Article 5, Global Policy Development Process, states that "Under this agreement the ICANN Board will ratify proposed global policies in accordance with the Global Policy Development Process, using review procedures as determined by ICANN."

Whereas, a proposed such review procedure was posted for public comments on the ICANN website on 6 April 2005, receiving comments which prompted redrafting and posting of a second draft on the ICANN website on 31 May 2005, with deadline for comments on 27 June 2005.

Whereas, the second draft did receive new comments which have been incorporated in the proposed version of the procedure.

Resolved (05.__), the ICANN Board hereby adopts the "Procedure for Review of Global Addressing Policies" and instructs staff to take all necessary measures to implement this procedure and to inform the ASO thereof.
