On Monday, 3 April 2017, join the Competition, Consumer Trust and Consumer Choice Review Team (CCT-RT) for one of two webinars on its Draft Report and Recommendations. This webinar provides you with the opportunity to learn about proposed improvements to the New generic Top-Level Domain (New gTLD) program and to share your input and ask clarifying questions about the CCT-RT Draft Report and Recommendations.

The purpose of the CCT-RT is to assess the New gTLD program in three areas: competition, consumer trust and consumer choice. The CCT-RT is also determining the effectiveness of the safeguards put in place to mitigate issues arising from the introduction of New gTLDs and the Program's application and evaluation process.

Join the webinar to receive a tailored briefing from the CCT-RT on its draft findings and recommendations. Attending the webinars will also allow you to provide initial feedback and ask clarifying questions prior to submitting your public comment of the CCTRT Draft Report. This public comment period is scheduled to close on 27 April 2017 and gives you the opportunity to provide input to the CCT-RT for its consideration as it continues its work towards developing its final report and recommendations.

On 3 April 2017, the CCT-RT will host two separate sessions at 10:00 - 11:30 UTC (time zone support here) and 19:00 - 20:30 UTC (time zone support here). In order to facilitate global participation, language services will be available in five UN languages.
