In the interest of transparency and accountability ICANN is providing the latest revision of the previously posted "Revised New gTLD Registry Agreement" for the community’s information and review.

This revision reflects the inputs and comments received from our stakeholders and other members of the community.

We have carefully considered the feedback on the revised Agreement and many suggestions have now been implemented in the new version of the Agreement. Community discussions will continue at ICANN’s Public Meetings in Beijing (7-11 April 2013).

The summary and analysis of comments received on the "Revised New gTLD Registry Agreement" that was posted on 5 February 2013 for official public comment have also been posted to http://www.icann.org/en/news/public-comment/report-comments-base-agreement-01apr13-en.pdf [PDF, 507 KB].

2 April Update: A flowchart illustrating the Agreement’s amendment process is available at http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/applicants/agb/base-agreement-proposed-amendment-process-02apr13-en.pdf [PDF, 446 KB].

Feedback on the revised Agreement can be emailed to registry-agreement-feedback@icann.org. Please monitor the ICANN blog and new gTLDs microsite for further updates on next steps.

We look forward to your comments.
