On 15 May 2019, the ICANN Board adopted 27 of the 29 policy recommendations of the Expedited Policy Development Process (EPDP) on the Temporary Specification for gTLD Registration Data Phase 1. The ICANN Board did not adopt parts of two of the recommendations, as the Board has identified that these portions are not in the best interests of the ICANN Community or the ICANN Org.
