Open Date: 19 October 2017 Close Date: 10 December 2017
Originating Organization: Global Domains Division
Categories/Tags: Second-Level Domains
Brief Overview: The Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) Implementation Guidelines relate to the IDN registration policies and practices, designed to minimize the risk of cybersquatting and consumer confusion, to cater to the interests of communities using local languages and scripts. Following the Call for Community Experts, a Working Group (WG) was formed in October 2015 to review the current version (3.0) of the IDN Implementation Guidelines, last updated in 2011. The WG updated the Guidelines and conducted the first public comment on them in March 2017. Based on the feedback received from the community, the WG has further updated the draft guidelines. The WG is releasing the latest draft version of the IDN Implementation Guidelines 4.0 [PDF, 316 KB] to get general feedback as well as response to some specific queries highlighted in this draft. Based on responses, the WG will finalize the Guidelines.
