Dear GAC,

Please see the message below from ICANN’s Global Domains Division (GDD) 
regarding proposed amendments to the base RA that were published today, for 
public comments until 13 July 2016 

Best wishes,

I wanted to see if you might be able to share the message below with the GAC 
regarding the amendment to the base RA public comment period announcement 
published this afternoon:  
Today, ICANN published for public comment proposed amendments to the base New 
gTLD Registry Agreement. ICANN is sending this communication to alert the GAC 
of the proposed amendments.  Should the GAC wish to submit comments for 
consideration, they must be received by 23:59 UTC 13 July 2016. Comment now. 
Amendment Process – How We Got Here A process for amending the Registry 
Agreement is defined in Section 7.7 of the Registry Agreement. All Registry 
Agreements based on the base New gTLD Registry Agreement contain  these 
provisions. The process is initiated when one party – ICANN or the Registries 
Stakeholder Group (RySG) – notifies the other that it wishes to propose changes 
to the Registry Agreement. The  amendment process can be initiated no more than 
once per year and, following its initiation, ICANN and a Working Group 
appointed by the RySG may negotiate and mutually agree on proposed changes 
before publishing said changes for comment by the greater ICANN  community. In 
July 2014, over one year after the original base Registry Agreement was 
approved, the RySG notified ICANN of its desire to negotiate changes to the 
Registry Agreement. The RySG then appointed a Working Group to negotiate an 
amendment with ICANN representatives. The goal was to arrive at terms that were 
mutually acceptable, so the revisions could  be presented to all Registry 
Operators and the ICANN board for final approval. Following those negotiations, 
the teams agreed upon the proposed changes that have been published for public 
comment today. In addition to posting the proposed changes for public comment 
and sending notification to the Applicable Registry Operators, ICANN published 
an announcement and a blog to  ensure community awareness. ICANN invites the 
GAC to read the proposed amendments and other published information, and 
provide input through the public comment process. Next Steps ICANN has 
initiated a 43-day public comment period. Once the public comment period 
closes, the RySG Working Group and ICANN will consider the comments received 
and make revisions,  where appropriate, resulting in the final proposed 
amendment. The final proposal will be distributed to all Registry Operators and 
the ICANN board for approval. Registry Operator approval will be solicited as 
defined in Section 7.6(j)(ii) of the Registry Agreement. If the amendments are 
approved by Registry Operators and the ICANN board, as provided in Section 
7.7(c) of the Registry Agreement, they shall be effective and deemed amendments 
 to the Registry Agreement upon 60 calendar days notice from ICANN to you.   
Read the amendment. Please let me know if you have any questions. We look 
forward to any feedback the GAC may have on the proposed amendments.   Best 
regards, Cyrus Namazi Vice President, Domain Name Services & Industry 
Engagement Global Domains Division ICANN   
Please let me know if you have any questions. 
Thank you for your time.
