Updated: 12 August 2010

Public Comment Deadline: 15 September 2010

In November 2009, ICANN appointed ITEMS International to carry out the external review of its country code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO).

Based on a survey and interviews, the independent consultant issued - in June 2010 - its recommendations and conclusions in a final report [PDF, 5.04 MB] which was released for consultation and submitted for public comment.

At the Brussels meeting, the ccNSO requested that ITEMS International publish an addendum [PDF, 648 KB] to its report which would extensively disclose all results of the survey/interviews.

Moreover, the questions raised during the exchange at ICANN’s 38 meeting indicated that the initial timeline allocated for the public comment process would not provide the ccTLDs with sufficient time to submit their written responses to the report.

In light of this request for additional time, the WG Members unanimously decided to extend the public comment period to 15 September 2010.

Please be reminded that the public comment material shall constitute working material and will thus be taken into account by the WG when drafting its recommendations for the ccNSO.
