Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy - Denial of Transfers (Reasons #8 and #9)

Explanation: As part of its ongoing efforts to review the Inter-Registrar 
Transfer Policy (the rules for transfer of domain names between registrars) the 
GNSO Council seeks community review and comment on two proposed revisions to 
the IRTP regarding reasons for which a registrar of record may deny a request 
to transfer a domain name to a new registrar. The two revisions being 
considered by the Council are referred to as Reason # 8 and Reason # 9. They 
are part of a larger policy development process (PDP) that has involved a 
subset of four reasons (Reason # 5 and # 7 in addition to # 8 and # 9) for 
which a registrar could deny a transfer request.

The overall IRTP review has become a considerable undertaking that could 
ultimately span as many as six separate policy development processes. A review 
of the current PDP involving Reasons # 8 and # 9 is set forth in the 
announcement for this comment forum.

On 17 April 2008, the GNSO Council launched a drafting group to develop 
suggested text modifications for Reasons 5, 7, 8 and 9. The drafting group 
delivered a Final Draft Report [PDF, 48K] dated 4 June 2008, proposing new 
textual language for reasons 8 and 9, while suggesting that denial reasons 5 
and 7 be considered within a separate proposed PDP or a future PDP that offers 
a stronger linkage with those issues.

The Council agreed with the recommendations of the drafting group. It directed 
the staff to post the proposed new text for Reasons # 8 and # 9 for 
constituency and public comments

Glen de Saint Géry and report back to the Council with a summary of the 
comments received.

You can read the recommendations regarding Reasons # 8 and # 9 with the 
proposed new language here:

Comments on the document are welcome through 18 July 2008.
