The Expedited Policy Development Process (EPDP) Team on the Temporary Specification for gTLD Registration Data held its first meeting on 1 August 2018.

The scope of the EPDP includes 1) confirming, or not, the Temporary Specification by its 25 May 2019 expiration date; and 2) discussing a standardized access model to nonpublic registration data. The discussion of a standardized access model will occur only after the EPDP Team has comprehensively answered a series of "gating questions" specified in its charter.

The EPDP Team meets twice a week in order to advance its work at a rapid pace. Its first focus is to develop a triage document, outlining which elements of the Temporary Specification are supported and do not require any change. The triage effort is expected to help inform the subsequent development of a work plan. The EPDP Team is scheduled to meet in Los Angeles from 24-27 September 2018. All meeting recordings, transcripts, and materials can be found on the EPDP wiki workspace.
