Subject: FOR REVIEW BY 16-MAY: BC comment on Policy Advisory Boards

ICANN has a public comment period on a Proposal for the Use of Mandatory Policy 
Advisory Boards for Regulated Industry Sector and Consumer-Trust-Sensitive New 
gTLD Strings.  

At last week's BC call, Ron Andruff volunteered to draft a brief BC comment.  
Ron's natural for this one, since he was among the originators of this idea 

Ron's draft comment is attached.  Please review and comment by 16-May.
(I informed ICANN staff that we would file on 17-May, even though the comment 
period closes today).
As for prior BC positions:
See Feb-2012 BC letter to ICANN Board, where we originated the idea of having 
ICANN enface commitments made by new gTLD applicants.   
In our Jun-2013 comment on GAC Safeguards (link), we said this about industry 
self-regulation regarding TLDs for regulated markets:

With respect to Safeguard (4) above, the BC believes that working consultation 
with relevant regulatory and industry bodies, especially for the purpose of 
jointly developing harm mitigation strategies, will promote self- regulatory 
best practices that will improve consumer disclosure and protection.
Also See Mar-2013 BC comment on PIC specs
