Next steps ----------
1. Proposals that reached consensus will be returned to the Policy SIG mailing list for an eight-week comment period.
2. If no substantial objections are received during the final comment period, the proposals are deemed to have reached consensus at each stage of the policy development process. At this point, the SIG Chairs forward the proposals to the APNIC Executive Council (EC) for endorsement.
3. If the APNIC EC endorses the proposals, the APNIC Secretariat begins work on implementation of the proposals. Implementation usually takes a minimum of three months, but may take more depending on the implementation complexity.
