Comment on the PIC process

Nominet UK is the applicant for gTLD strings .Wales (application number : 
1-1105-18383 ) and .Cymru (application number: 1-1105-16488). We would like to 
confirm that we have correctly understood the Public Interest Commitment 
process set out in Specification 11 of the draft New gTLD Registry Agreement of 
5 February 2013.

Our understanding is that the inclusion of Public Interest Commitments (PICs) 
in Specification 11 of the registry agreement by an applicant is voluntary. 
Such PICs must be submitted to ICANN by the 5th March before being published 
for comment.

Is it ICANN's intention that this will be the sole opportunity for PICs to be 
submitted, or is it expected that PICs may be adopted at a later stage (for 
example, as part of the contract negotiation phase of the delegation process) 
in response to comments and objections made prior to delegation?

Kind Regards,

Sarah Walden
