Eight (8) Registry Services Evaluation Policy (RSEP) requests were submitted by the registry operators listed below to allow the release of country and territory names for the below TLDs. In total, the requests concern 8 New gTLDs.
Currently, .STUDY, .COURSES, .LAMBORGHINI, XN--3OQ18VL8PN36A, .VOLKSWAGEN, .BUGATTI, .AUDI and .DELTA Registry Agreements require country and territory names contained in specific internationally recognized lists to be withheld from registration or allocated to the registry operator at all levels.
As required by the RSEP, ICANN has undertaken a preliminary determination on whether these RSEP proposals might raise significant competition, security or stability issues. ICANN’s preliminary review (based on the information provided) did not identify any such issues.
Following ICANN’s preliminary determination that the proposals do not raise significant competition, security or stability issues, it was further determined that the change would require a material change to the respective Registry Agreements and that an amendment is needed in order to effect the change.The proposed amendments, which are being posted for comment, would allow the registration of country and territory names at all levels in .STUDY, .COURSES, .LAMBORGHINI, XN--3OQ18VL8PN36A, .VOLKSWAGEN, .BUGATTI, .AUDI and .DELTA TLDs. It should be noted that Specification 13 has been granted for .LAMBORGHINI on 2 June 2015, Specification 13 has been granted for XN--3OQ18VL8PN36A on 2 July 2015, Specification 13 has been granted for .VOLKSWAGEN on 14 May 2015, Specification 13 has been granted for .BUGATTI on 23 July 2015, Specification 13 has been granted for .AUDI on 21 May 2015, and Specification 13 has been granted for .DELTA on 19 February 2015, whereas Registry Agreements for .STUDY and .COURSES do not include Specification 13 provisions in place.
