The renewal proposals of SITA and Musedoma include requests to waive the
requirement to use ICANN accredited registrars. We believe it would be
inappropriate to grant these requests.
The use of non-accredited organizations could endanger the stability and
security of the domain name system that the ICANN was formed to protect.
The ICANN must maintain the ability to formulate and enforce policy and
standards regarding the registration system.
The registrar accreditation process is not daunting or complicated. The
fact that the accredited registrar community has grown by over 300% in
just over a year is evidence of that fact. If either Registry Operator
feels the need for additional distribution channels, it can well be
accomplished within the established accreditation standards.
SITA also requests the ability to offer registrations directly. This is
something that we would agree should be considered on a case by case
basis for Sponsored Registry Operators and only if it can be
accomplished within the established registrar accreditation framework
and established principles of non-discriminatory conduct by Registry
