ICANN Publishes Seven Additional Script-Based Reference Label Generation Rules

19 January 2023

Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) opened a new Public Comment proceeding.

ICANN has developed seven additional script-based reference Label Generation Rules (LGRs) for the second level for Armenian, Cyrillic, Greek, Latin, Japanese, Korean, and Myanmar. Associated language-based reference LGRs have been updated accordingly. This work was done in consultation with relevant script communities to improve the transparency and consistency of the Internationalized Domain Name table review process and to facilitate the registry operations of generic top-level domains.

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a nonprofit public benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
