Dear All,

Below are the resolutions taken by the GNSO Council today, 15 October 2014

1.     Adoption of the IRTP Part D Final Report and Recommendations


 1. On 17 January 2013, the GNSO Council launched a Policy Development Process 
(PDP) on IRTP Part D [http://gnso.icann.org/en/council/resolutions - 
201301<http://gnso.icann.org/en/council/resolutions#201301>] addressing the 
following six Charter questions:

a)     Whether reporting requirements for registries and dispute providers 
should be developed, in order to make precedent and trend information available 
to the community and allow reference to past cases in dispute submissions;

b)     Whether additional provisions should be included in the TDRP (Transfer 
Dispute Resolution Policy) on how to handle disputes when multiple transfers 
have occurred;

c)     Whether dispute options for registrants should be developed and 
implemented as part of the policy (registrants currently depend on registrars 
to initiate a dispute on their behalf);

d)     Whether requirements or best practices should be put into place for 
registrars to make information on transfer dispute resolution options available 
to registrant;

e)     Whether existing penalties for policy violations are sufficient or if 
additional provisions/penalties for specific violations should be added into 
the policy;

f)      Whether the universal adoption and implementation of EPP AuthInfo codes 
has eliminated the need of FOAs.

 2. This PDP has followed the prescribed PDP steps as stated in the Bylaws, 
resulting in a Final Report delivered on 25 September 2014;

 3. The IRTP Part D WG has reached full consensus on the 18 recommendations in 
relation to the six issues outlined above;

 4. The GNSO Council has reviewed and discussed these recommendations.

Now therefore be it resolved,

 1. The GNSO Council recommends to the ICANN Board of Directors the adoption of 
the IRTP Part D recommendations (#1 to #18) as detailed in the IRTP Part D 
Final Report 

 2. The GNSO Council shall convene an IRTP Part D Implementation Review Team to 
assist ICANN Staff in developing the implementation details for the new policy 
should it be approved by the ICANN Board. The Implementation Review Team will 
be tasked with evaluating the proposed implementation of the policy 
recommendations as approved by the Board and is expected to work with ICANN 
Staff to ensure that the resultant implementation fulfils the intentions of the 
approved policies. If the IRTP Part D Implementation Review Team identifies any 
potential modifications to the policy or new policy recommendations, the IRTP 
Part D Implementation Review Team shall refer these to the GNSO Council for its 
consideration and follow-up, as appropriate. Following adoption by the ICANN 
Board of the recommendations, the GNSO Secretariat is authorized to issue a 
call for volunteers for an IRTP Part D Implementation Review Team to the 
members of the IRTP Part D Working Group.

2.     Adoption of a Charter for a Cross Community Working Group  to discuss 
Internet governance (CWG-IG) issues affecting ICANN and make recommendations to 
the chartering organization on these issues


1. This group was initiated in December 2013 in response to a call from ICANN 
CEO and has been working informally since then;

2. The group has developed the charter found at 

3. This charter has already been approved by ALAC, ccNSO and SSAC.


1. The GNSO Council approves the Charter 
2. The RrSG, the RySG, NCSG, BC, IPC, and ISPC will each identify one member to 
serve on the CWG-IG by 22-October-2014 taking into account the charter 
requirement that best efforts  should be made to ensure that members:
-  Have sufficient expertise to participate in the applicable subject matter;
 - Commit to actively participate in the activities of the CWG-IG on an ongoing 
and long-term basis; and
- Where appropriate, solicit and communicate the views and concerns of 
individuals in the organization that appoints them.

3.  The GNSO will collaborate with the other SOs and ACs to issue a call  for 
observers to join the CWG-IG, each in accordance with its own rules.

4.  As the charter calls for each of the chartering organizations to appoint a 
co-chair for the group, the GNSO Council appoints Rafik Dammak to serve as a 
member of the CWG-IG, to serve as the GNSO co-chair of the CWG-IG and to serve 
as GNSO Council liaison to the group.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you very much.

Kind regards,

Glen de Saint Géry
GNSO Secretariat
