Study on Technical Use of Root Zone Label Generation Rules

15 May 2019

Open Date: 15 May 2019 Close Date: 30 June 2019
Originating Organization: ICANN: Global Domains Division
Categories/Tags: Top-Level Domains
Brief Overview:

Third version of the Root Zone Label Generation Rules (RZ-LGR-3) was released for public comment on 25 April 2019, integrating 16 script proposals out of the 28 scripts identified. As the RZ-LGR is being incrementally developed by the community, the RZ-LGR Study Group (SG) was constituted on the request of the ICANN Board to study technical considerations for utilizing the RZ-LGR to determine valid top-level domains (TLDs) and their variant labels in a harmonized manner. RZ-LGR-SG has completed its work and is releasing the Recommendations for the Technical Utilization of the Root Zone Label Generation Rules to seek feedback from the community. RZ-LGR-SG will take into account the community input to finalize the recommendations. The final recommendations will be presented to the ICANN Board for further consideration.
