The CSC monitors Public Technical Identifiers' (PTI) performance of the IANA naming function by analyzing performance reports on a monthly basis and publishing its findings. It is authorized to undertake remedial action to address poor performance, and if performance issues are not remedied, the CSC is authorized to escalate the performance issues to the ccNSO and GNSO for consideration. Additionally, the CSC may recommend changes to the naming Service Level Expectations as well as enhancements to the provision of the IANA naming services.

Per the CSC Charter, the GNSO has the opportunity to appoint a non-registry liaison to the CSC. There is currently a vacancy for this role, which the GNSO Council is seeking to fill through an Expression of Interest process.
