Hi all,

ICANN is currently reviewing the RAA and intends to make changes and come up
with a new RAA by June. This is very important to all of us from the
following perspectives -

ICANNS Objectives

* to merge some of the consensus policies into the RAA

* to come up with alternative options to enforce compliance for registrars
who are not currently in compliance with their RAA (such as for instance a
contractual provision that would allow ICANN to temporarily suspend ADDs of
a Registrar if they are not in compliance)

* there have been a few circumstances highlighted in the ICANN contracts
which conflict with local law in other countries such as Germany. There
maybe possible changes that could be made to the RAA to circumvent those

Our Objectives
I would ask everyone in the Registrars Constituency to sit with a copy of
the RAA and a marker and highlighting other areas that ICANN should review,
this maybe an opportunity for us to give feedback on certain contractual
modifications that the RAA should have which would benefit us as a
community. Couple of areas that we could look at are -

- Budget ;)
- Compliance

Any feedback that you may have on suggestions in the RAA review process -
send them out to the list. If you wish to send them directly to ICANN - feel
free to send them to Tim Cole (cole AT icann . org)
