On 15 December 2016, the GNSO Council adopted the GNSO Review of the GAC ICANN57 Hyderabad Communiqué. Subsequently, the Review has been submitted to the ICANN Board, providing feedback on issues in the GAC Communiqué related to generic top-level domains (gTLD). The issues include the future gTLDs policies and procedures, mitigation of domain name abuse, and two-letter country/territory codes at the second level. The Review specifies whether those issues are within the remit of the GNSO, whether they are subject to existing or ongoing GNSO policy development work, and/or how they have been or will be dealt by the GNSO. This Review aims to further enhance the coordination and promote the information sharing on gTLD related policy activities between the GAC, Board, and the GNSO. Read the Review here
