Registry Stakeholder Group Charter Revisions (Sep 2012)

11 October 2012

Forum Announcement: Comment Period Opens on Date: 11 October 2012
Categories/Tags: Reviews/Improvements
Purpose (Brief):

The GNSO's Registry Stakeholder Group (RySG) has alerted the ICANN Staff to a number of revisions to its Charter. This is the first instance where the Staff or the Board have been alerted to any amendments or revisions to a formally approved charter by a GNSO Stakeholder Group or Constituency since the latest round of GNSO independent review improvements was implemented.

The ICANN Bylaws provide that "each GNSO Stakeholder Group … and each of its associated Constituencies shall maintain recognition with the ICANN Board."

On 3 October 2012 the ICANN Board directed Staff to open a Public Comment Forum to solicit community input concerning these Charter amendments. The pubic is invited to review the charter amendments made by the RySG and provide comments to assist the Board in its review of the Charter changes.
