Call for Volunteers: Policy Development Process (PDP) Working Group Members
- Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (IRTP) Part C
The Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council seeks volunteers to
serve on a Working Group that will address issues related to the transfer of
domain names between registrars. After investigating and considering
specific issues (detailed below), the Working Group is expected to recommend
how to handle these issues, which could include proposals for changes to the
Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (a consensus policy adopted in 2004).
What This Group Will Do
The initial tasks of the group will be to consider the following
questions and make recommendations to the GNSO Council:
a) "Change of Control" function, including an investigation of how this
function is currently achieved, if there are any applicable models in the
country-code name space that can be used as a best practice for the gTLD
space, and any associated security concerns. It should also include a review
of locking procedures, as described in Reasons for Denial #8 and #9, with an
aim to balance legitimate transfer activity and security.
b) Whether provisions on time-limiting Form Of Authorization (FOA)s
should be implemented to avoid fraudulent transfers out. For example, if a
Gaining Registrar sends and receives an FOA back from a transfer contact,
but the name is locked, the registrar may hold the FOA pending adjustment to
the domain name status, during which time the registrant or other
registration information may have changed.
c) Whether the process could be streamlined by a requirement that
registries use IANA IDs for registrars rather than proprietary IDs.
How This Group Will Work
ICANN Working Groups use transparent, open processes. The meetings of this
WG will be recorded, and the recordings will be available to the public. The
mailing list for the IRTP Part C WG will be archived publicly. Working Group
members are expected to submit Statements of Interest (SOI). The group will
collaborate using <https://community.icann.org/display/gnsoirtppdpwg/Home>
a public workspace. The Working Group is expected to follow the
GNSO Working Group Guidelines.
How to Join
The Council invites interested parties to provide names of expected
participants who can then be added to the WG mailing list. The GNSO Council
may also invite stakeholders and experts to join. Participants in the
Working Group that addressed IRTP Part B are especially encouraged to apply.
Community members who wish to be invited to join the group should contact

This WG is already forming; please apply promptly.
The Inter�\Registrar Transfer Policy (IRTP) is a consensus policy adopted in
2004 to provide a straightforward procedure for domain name holders to
transfer domain names between registrars. An overall review of this policy
identified areas that require clarification or improvement. At its meeting
of 22 September 2011, the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO)
Council passed a resolution chartering a Policy Development Process (PDP)
Working Group (WG) to address the topic of Inter-Registrar Transfer Policies
(IRTP) Part C. Because the initial review identified a wide range of issues
related to transferring domain names, the issues have been categorized into
subsets. This Working Group will tackle the issues referred to as “Part
