2. ITU-T Coordination Program
Eliot reported that Scott Mansfield is leading the IETF delegation to the Study Group 15 meeting currently being held in Geneva. The SG15 agenda includes discussing the approval of G.8113.1 and G.8113.2; a decision is not expected until the very end of the meeting (scheduled to end 16 December 2011). The IETF delegation position is to encourage safe and proper standards development through the use of IETF processes that must be followed for codepoint allocations. Eliot will report back to the board on the outcome of the SG15 meeting at the next IAB teleconference on 21 December 2011.
Eliot reported that the ITU-T Liaisons are planning a retreat for 31 January – 2 February 2012. The IAB is invited to attend this retreat, and arrangements are being made for remote participation.
3. EU Standardization
Olaf reported that the European Commission is in the process of evaluating its ICT standardization policy. Proposed regulation on its way to the European Parliament would allow for recognition of certain approved standards from global fora and consortia in formal EU documents, even if those global fora and consortia are not recognized as formal standards bodies by the EC. The decisions about which standards to accept will be made by a Technical Committee on EU Consortia and Fora. A seat on this committee is being reserved for IETF/ISOC. After discussion, the board agreed to use the address of ISOC’s office in Geneva as the destination for the official invitation to the committee.

The board discussed the IAB response to the IANA RFP Appendix J form. The board agreed to send the form to NTIA pending final edits to be made by Bernard.
