Registry Service Evaluation Process

Welcome to the Registry Services Evaluation Process information area.

The Registry Services Evaluation Process was developed through ICANN's consensus policy development process. The policy recommendations contained in the Final Report to the GNSO (posted 10 July 2005) were accepted by the GNSO Council, and adopted by the ICANN Board on 8 November 2005. All gTLD registry operators are required to follow this policy when submitting a request for new registry services.

This area is designed to document the process of the evaluation of new registry services as well as allow for discussion of issues related to proposed new registry services by the ICANN community.

An RSS feed is available on this page so that the community can stay current with proposed new registry services. If you would like to subscribe to the RSS feed for this page, click the RSS icon. ICANN also offers an open public comment forum on the process. Please send comments you have about this policy implementation or any service posted here to registryservice@icann.org. Comments may be viewed at http://forum.icann.org/lists/registryservice.
