Implementation Review Team
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.
The GNSO Council approved and assembled a pre-IRT 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.
