Hi Glen, I would like to volunteer, as this is very relevant to our technology

Best, Alain

Call for Volunteers: Policy Development Process (PDP) Working Group Members - 
Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (IRTP) Part C

In Brief
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 existing 
Inter-Registrar Transfer 
Policy<http://www.icann.org/en/transfers/policy-12jul04.htm> (a consensus 
policy adopted in 2004).
What This Group Will Do
The initial tasks of the group will be to consider the following questions[1] 
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 a public 
workspace<https://community.icann.org/display/gnsoirtppdpwg/Home>. The Working 
Group is expected to follow theGNSO Working Group 
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 the GNSO 
 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 C”.
