At a global level, in addition to LACNIC organization that provides services for Latin America and the Caribbean there are four other Regional Internet Registries that provide services in different regions: AfriNIC, the Regional Registry most recently recognized by ICANN, provides services in the African region; APNIC covers the Asia-Pacific region; ARIN services North America and part of the Caribbean; and RIPE NCC covers Europe and the-Middle-East.
The provisions of the Service Level Agreement for the IANA Numbering Services provided to the Internet Number Community (SLA NRO) call for the creation of a Review Committee (RC) constituted by three representatives of each RIR.
The main functions of the Review Committee (RC) include advising and assisting the NRO EC in its periodic review of the service level of the IANA Numbering Services provided to the Internet Number Community.
This RC will comprise 15 members, three from each of the five RIRs, as follows:
