Hi Craig,

Many thanks - this is very helpful.  Have .MOBI, .ASIA, and .AERO confirmed 
that they implemented the Policy effective 1 May?

Subject: RE: Implementation of AGP Restriction Consensus Policy

Hi Kristina,

Here is the status report I provided to Policy staff in advance of the last 
GNSO Council call knowing that I would not be available to update on the call 

- An advisory on the implementation of the AGP Limits Policy was made to the 
community on 17 December 2008, and called for roll-out of the Policy as soon as 
possible and no later than 31 March 2009 for an effective date of 1 April 2009.
- 15 of the 16 gTLD registries are required to implement the Policy since they 
offer an AGP to their registrars.
- 12 of the 15 gTLD registries reported in February 2009 that they will 
implement the Policy effective 1 April 2009.
- 3 of the 15 gTLD registries (.MOBI, .ASIA and .AERO) requested a one-month 
extension and have provided notice that they will implement the Policy 
effective 1 May 2009.
- The new reporting requirements of the Policy are due to be reflected for the 
12 gTLD registries in the reports they are required to submit by 20 May 2009 
for the April reporting period. Monthly registry reports for April 2009 will be 
publicly available on ICANN's website on or after 1 August 2009 in observance 
of the three-month confidentiality period for registry reports. The new 
reporting requirements are:
        - Number of exemption requests 
        - Number of exemptions granted 
        - Number of names affected by granted exemption request 
        - Number of AGP deletes (domains-deleted-grace) if this information is 
not currently defined      in the Operator's monthly reporting requirement

AGP deletes information:
- On 13 November 2008, an announcement on the ICANN website reported that AGP 
deletes had decreased by 84% (17.6 million to 2.8 million) from the period June 
2008 to July 2008 following implementation of the ICANN Board approved AGP 
Budget Provision. This provision called for an assessment of the 
registrar-level transaction fee, US$0.20 at that time, for all AGP deletes that 
exceed the threshold defined in provision. The threshold of this provision, and 
that of the AGP Limits Policy, is 10% of the net adds for the month or 50 
whichever is greater. 
- The AGP Budget Provision is due to expire on 30 June 2009 at the conclusion 
of ICANN's fiscal year. 
- For the period July 2008 through January 2009, the average monthly AGP 
deletes figure is 2.8 million. 

Please let me know if you have further questions about this information.

[Apologies for the interruption - this message is intended for the staff 
person(s) responsible for the implementation of the AGP restriction consensus 
policy.  I meant to ask in our last Council call, but forgot.]

If I've remembered the dates correctly, March 31 was the deadline for 
implementation, and the monthly reports for April (which are due about now, I 
think) should reflect that implementation.  Was the implementation deadline met 
by all registries and will ICANN be receiving reports for April from all of 
them that reflect that implementation?  If not, which ones didn't meet that 
deadline and when will they?

Many thanks!
