Hi Catilin.  Thanks for the update.  Agree that Registrars have (more than) 
enough on their plates at the moment.  Even large organizations are struggling 
to keep up, and we are very wary of the potential confusion for Registrants.

If there is one major change resulting from IRTP-C, it was the change of 
Registrant (COR) process.  Like many registrars, Go Daddy already offers this 
service internally.  But I can ask if we have any descriptions or flowcharts 
that are shareable with the group that might help guide our work on this 
recommendation.  I'll try to post this in the next few weeks.

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for volunteering to participate in the IRTP Part C IRT.  I wanted to 
give you a quick update on where things stand.

The IRT met once on 3 July to go over the project plan drafted by Mike Zupke.  
Thank you again to all who participated in the call.  ICANN 47 in Durban took 
place shortly after this call, and members of the registrar community expressed 
some concern about all of the new contractual and policy implementation efforts 
that were coming down the pipeline, including but not limited to, the 2013 RAA, 
the Expired Registration Recovery Policy (PEDNR/ERRP), IRTP Part B 
Recommendations 8 and 9 and IRTP Part C Recommendations 1, 2 and 3.  To that 
end, we plan to work with the registrar community on an implementation roll-out 
plan, designed to make policy implementation cycles more predictable and 
thereby more manageable for registrars to incorporate into their business 

In addition to putting together a more predictable policy implementation cycle, 
the Registrar Services Team is in the process of interviewing candidates for a 
new position within the team.  This new ICANN staff member will be responsible 
for liaising with the ICANN Policy Team, Working Groups, and Implementation 
Review Teams on issues that involve the registrar community.

The board approval of the 2013 RAA and related outreach and education efforts 
as well as resource limitations in the Registrar Services Team has caused 
delays in the IRTP Part C IRT meeting planning.  While we appreciate that 
members of the community were hoping for an earlier implementation plan, I 
wanted to provide you with an explanation of what has been going on during this 
period.  We are also aware that there may be concerns about keeping fresh the 
WG discussions and original intent. In short, we have not forgotten about the 
work of this team, and we are confident that adding another staff member and 
having a thought-out policy implementation cycle will mitigate these types of 
delays in the future.  If the group believes that some work could be done in 
the interim, please let us know so we can provide the resources for the IRT to 
discuss on a call.

Mike Zupke, who was previously responsible for leading this group, is on an 
extended leave until early November.  Accordingly, if you have any questions or 
concerns, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

Kind regards,

Caitlin Tubergen
Registrar Relations and Contracts Manager
