Forum Announcement: Comment Period Opens on Date: 10 February 2012
Categories/Tags: ICANN Board / Bylaws, Policy Processes
Purpose (Brief): In order to complete the documentation of the revised GNSO PDP, it is recommended that the ICANN Bylaws be modified to include the new threshold definitions. In addition, a small revision to Annex A of the ICANN Bylaws is recommended to require that public comment periods on PDP-related documents shall abide by the practices for public comment periods in effect within ICANN. A redline of the proposed Bylaws revisions is attached to this submission.  The proposed revisions are put out for public comment prior to Board consideration of incorporating the revisions into the Bylaws.
