Originating Organization: Global Domains and Strategy (GDS)
Categories/Tags: Second-Level Domains
Brief Overview:

To improve the transparency and consistency of the Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) table review process to facilitate the registry operations of new gTLDs, ICANN has developed additional reference IDN Tables in machine-readable format, called reference Label Generation Rulesets (LGRs) for the second level. The reference IDN tables are based on the Guidelines for Developing Reference Label Generation Rules (LGRs), which were finalized after community review. These reference LGRs will be used in reviewing IDN tables submitted by the gTLD registries, e.g. through the Registry Service Evaluation Policy (RSEP) process.
