Dear All,

As discussed during the last Council meeting, the Council will also need to
appoint a Council liaison for this WG (see below). As a reminder, the task
of a Council liaison 'consists of reporting to the CO on a regular basis on
the progress of the Working Group; assisting the Chair as required with
his/her knowledge of WG processes and practices; taking back to the CO any
questions or queries the WG might have in relation to its charter and
mission; and, assisting or intervening when the WG faces challenges or
problems. The liaison is expected to fulfil the liaison role in neutral
manner, monitor the discussions of the Working Group and assist and inform
the Chair and the WG as required' (from the GNSO Working Group Guidelines).

If you are interested in taking on this role, please let the mailing list
know so the appointment can be considered at the next GNSO Council meeting.

With best regards,


From:  Glen de Saint Géry <Glen@xxxxxxxxx>

Call for Volunteers: Policy Development Process (PDP) Working Group Members
- Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (IRTP) Part D


In Brief 

The Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council seeks volunteers to
serve on a Working Group that will address issues related to the transfer of
domain names between registrars. After investigating and considering
specific issues (detailed below), the Working Group is expected to recommend
how to handle these issues, which could include proposals for changes to the
existing Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy
<http://archive.icann.org/en/transfers/policy-12jul04.htm>  (a consensus
policy adopted in 2004).



What This Group Will Do

The initial tasks of the group will be to consider the following six
questions[1] <#_ftn1>  and make relevant recommendations to the GNSO


a)      Whether reporting requirements for registries and dispute providers
should be developed, in order to make precedent and trend information
available to the community and allow reference to past cases in dispute

b)      Whether additional provisions should be included in the TDRP
(Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy) on how to handle disputes when multiple
transfers have occurred;

c)      Whether dispute options for registrants should be developed and
implemented aspart of the policy (registrants currently depend on registrars
to initiate a dispute on their behalf);

d)      Whether requirements or best practices should be put into place for
registrars to make information on transfer dispute resolution options
available to registrants;

e)      Whether existing penalties for policy violations are sufficient or
if additional provisions/penalties for specific violations should be added
into the policy;

f)       Whether the universal adoption and implementation of EPP AuthInfo
codes has eliminated the need of FOAs.

How This Group Will Work

ICANN Working Groups use transparent, open processes. The meetings of this
WG will be recorded, and the recordings will be available to the public. The
mailing list for the IRTP Part D WG will be archived publicly. Working Group
members are expected to submit Statements of Interest (SOI). The group will
collaborate using a public workspace. The Working Group is expected to
follow the GNSO Working Group Guidelines
n.org/council/annex-1-gnso-wg-guidelines-07apr11-en.pdf> .


How to Join 

The Council invites interested parties to provide names of expected
participants who can then be added to the WG mailing list. The GNSO Council
may also invite stakeholders and experts to join. Participants in the
Working Group that addressed IRTP Part C are especially encouraged to apply.
Community members who wish to be invited to join the group should contact
the GNSO secretariat
Part%20C%20Working%20Group>  (gnso.secretariat@xxxxxxxxx). This WG is
already forming; please apply promptly.


The Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy
(IRTP) is a consensus policy adopted in 2004 to provide a straightforward
procedure for domain name holders to transfer domain names between
registrars. An overall review of this policy identified areas that require
clarification or improvement. At its meeting on 17 January 2013, the Generic
Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council passed a resolution chartering
a Policy Development Process (PDP) Working Group (WG) to address the topic
of Inter-Registrar Transfer Policies (IRTP) Part D. Because the initial
review identified a wide range of issues related to transferring domain
names, the issues have been categorized into subsets. This Working Group
will tackle the issues referred to as ³Part D².
