Brief Overview: To facilitate and improve consistency of testing and stability of registry operations of new gTLDs, ICANN has developed reference Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) tables in machine readable format, called Label Generation Rulesets (LGRs) for the second level, for use in Pre-Delegation Testing (PDT) and the Registry Service Evaluation Process (RSEP). At this time reference LGRs for 29 languages are being released for public comment. In addition, a process is also being proposed for Evaluation of Deviation from the Reference Second Level LGRs [PDF, 255 KB] for feedback from the community.
