An Implementation Review Team is a voluntary ICANN team that reviews proposed implementation plans as drafted by ICANN Organization, checking for consistency with ICANN Board-approved GNSO recommendations. The team also answers questions and gathers clarifications from ICANN org as needed. It provides advice on technical and operational details concerning the recommendations in question.[1]


The GNSO Council approved and assembled a pre-IRT in April 2019 just before the ICANN Board considered the EPDP Team's Final Report to guide the implementation of the Interim Registration Data Policy. All pre-IRT members transitioned to the IRT, for which ICANN called volunteers on 20 May 2019. The IRT helps with the implementation of the Expedited Policy Development Process (EPDP) Team's Phase 1 policy recommendations. ICANN expressed special interest in the assistance EPDP Phase 1 Team members and registry and registrar representatives could offer.[2]
