Dear All,


Ahead of the official Council minutes, the following resolutions were approved 
at the GNSO Council meeting on 23 July 2009.

Thank you.
Kind regards


1. Motion for Approval of a Charter for the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy 
(IRTP) Part B Working Group (WG)
Proposed by Tim Ruiz, seconded by Chuck Gomes.


On 24 June 2009 the GNSO Council initiated PDP IRTP Part B and, decided to 
create a PDP WG for the purposes of fulfilling the requirements of the PDP; and,

The GNSO Council has reviewed the charter.


The GSNO Council approves the charter and appoints Tim Ruiz confirmed as the 
GNSO Council Liaison to the IRTP PDP Part B WG.

The GNSO council further directs that the work of the IRTP Part B WG be 
initiated no later then 14 days after the approval of this motion. Until such 
time as the WG can select a chair and that chair can be confirmed by the GNSO 
Council, the GNSO council Liaison shall act as interim


The Working Group shall consider the following questions as outlined in the 
issues report and make recommendations to the GNSO Council:

a) Whether a process for urgent return/resolution of a domain name should be 
developed, as discussed within the SSAC hijacking report
(http://www.icann.org/announcements/hijacking-report-12jul05.pdf); see
also (http://www.icann.org/correspondence/cole-to-tonkin-14mar05.htm);

b) Whether additional provisions on undoing inappropriate transfers are needed, 
especially with regard to disputes between a Registrant and Admin Contact (AC). 
The policy is clear that the Registrant can overrule the AC, but how this is 
implemented is currently at the discretion of
the registrar;

c) Whether special provisions are needed for a change of registrant when it 
occurs near the time of a change of registrar. The policy does not currently 
deal with change of registrant, which often figures in hijacking cases;

d) Whether standards or best practices should be implemented regarding use of a 
Registrar Lock status (e.g. when it may/may not, should/should not be applied);

e) Whether, and if so, how best to clarify denial reason #7: A domain name was 
already in 'lock status' provided that the Registrar provides a readily 
accessible and reasonable means for the Registered Name Holder to remove the 
lock status.

To inform its work, the WG should pursue the availability of further 
information from ICANN compliance Staff to understand how elements of the 
existing Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy that are applicable to the above 
questions are enforced. The WG should also request compliance
Staff to review any policy recommendations it develops and provide advice on 
how the recommendations may best be structured to ensure clarity and
