Summary:

On 17 May 2018, the ICANN Board of Directors (ICANN Board) adopted the Temporary Specification for generic top-level domain (gTLD) Registration Data ("Temporary Specification") pursuant to the procedures for the establishment of temporary policies in ICANN's agreements with Registry Operators and Registrars ("Contracts"). The Temporary Specification provides modifications to existing requirements in the Registrar Accreditation and Registry Agreements to help bring them into compliance with the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"). Per the procedure for Temporary Policies as outlined in the Contracts, following adoption of the temporary specification, the Board "shall immediately implement the Consensus Policy development process set forth in ICANN's Bylaws". Per the requirements of the procedure for Temporary Policies, this Consensus Policy development process on the temporary specification would need to be carried out within a one-year period as the Temporary Specification can only remain in force for up to 1 year, from the effective date of 25 May 2018.

At its meeting on 19 July 2018, the GNSO Council initiated an Expedited Policy Development Process on the Temporary Specification for gTLD Registration Data and adopted this charter for the EPDP Team to deliberate the issues outlined below.

The EPDP Phase 1 Team submitted its final report to the GNSO Council for its consideration on 20 February 2019.

On 4 March 2019, the GNSO Council adopted the EPDP's Phase 1 recommendations and instructed the EPDP Team to commence work on a System for Standardized Access to Non-Public Registration Data as well as other topics identified in Phase 2 of the Charter.
