IDN TLD Allocation Implementation Processes

20 August 2008

Following the progress on the IDN TLD allocation processes during the ICANN 
meeting in Paris a new area has been made available to describe IDN policy 
development and IDN ccTLD allocation developments under ICANN's IDN Area: 

At the Paris meeting, the Board approved both of the processes described below 
for implementation.

In relation to the IDN ccTLD "fast track" process it was resolved that the 
Board directs staff to: "(1) post the IDNC WG final report for public comments; 
(2) commence work on implementation issues in consultation with relevant 
stakeholders; and (3) submit a detailed implementation report including a list 
of any outstanding issues to the Board in advance of the ICANN Cairo meeting in 
November 2008."

On a related note, the ICANN Board also adopted "the GNSO policy 
recommendations for the introduction of new gTLDs.
 And further that the Board directs staff to continue to further develop and 
complete its detailed implementation plan, continue communication with the 
community on such work, and provide the Board with a final version of the 
implementation proposals for the board and community to approve before the new 
gTLD introduction process is launched."
